VTV.vn - Residents of Ain Sefra in northern Algeria welcomed the sight of snow in the Sahara, the hottest desert in the world.

A rare bout of icy weather hit the town, covering parts of the sandy slopes in white, even though it melts as temperatures rise during the day. Photographer Hamouda Ben Jerad, who filmed footage of people walking around admiring the sights, said the mixture of sand and snow proved a unique photo opportunity.
