Saudi Woman Scales Mount Everest

A Saudi Arabian woman was among 64 people who successfully scaled Mount Everest on Saturday from Nepal’s side of the mountain, according to mountaineering officials.

Raha Moharrak, who is 25 years old and lives in Dubai, has become the first Saudi woman to scale the world’s highest peak. “I really don’t care about being the first,” she was quoted as saying, according to the BBC. “So long as it inspires someone else to be second.”
