A Saudi woman, Raha Muharraq, on Saturday reached the summit of Everest, the world's highest peak, in a first for the conservative Muslim kingdom where women's sports are severely restricted, her proud father said.
"She reached the summit of Everest on Saturday morning. We have been able to contact her and she is very exhausted and now resting," Hassan Muharraq told AFP.
"She is very happy and we, the family, are very happy with her achievement, which was not easy."
