Today's Quote


Sherif Ali: "There is the railway. And that is the desert. From here until we reach the other side, no water but what we can carry with us. For the camels, no water at all. If the camels die, we die. And in twenty days they will start to die."

Lawrence of Arabia: "There's no time to waste then, is there?"

Today's Facts

Saudi Arabia shares borders with six other countries: Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Yemen.

The country is a monarchy, the population is around 27 million, and it makes most of its money from exporting oil.

Saudi Arabia's flag is green with white words which say: "There is no god but God; Muhammad is the messenger of God".
