Snow falls in Baghdad

Snow fell in Baghdad today for the first time that anyone can remember. A light blanket of snow covered the city, bringing Baghdad to a halt as people enjoyed the wintry spectacle.

"For the first time in my life I saw a snow-rain like this falling in Baghdad," said one 63-year old.

Perhaps the most amazing thing though is that while the city was covered by snow, according to the Associated Press, there were no reports of violence.
