A woman from Saudi Arabia has made history by reaching the summit of Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain, it was reported on Saturday.
Raha Moharrak, 27, not only became the first Saudi woman to attempt the climb but also the youngest Arab to make it to the top of Everest, the BBC reported.
She is part of a four-person expedition that also includes the first Qatari man and the first Palestinian man attempting to reach the summit, it added.
Originally from Jeddah, Moharrak is a university graduate currently based in Dubai.
A biography on the expedition website said convincing Moharrak's family to agree to her climb "was as great a challenge as the mountain itself", though they fully support her now.
"I really don't care about being the first," she is quoted as saying. "So long as it inspires someone else to be second."
