Saudi woman becomes first Arab woman to peak Everest

A SAUDI woman has made history by reaching the summit of the world's highest mountain, the BBC reported on Sunday.

Raha Moharrak, 25, not only became the first Saudi woman to attempt the climb but also the youngest Arab to make it to the top of Everest.

BBC reported she was part of a four-person expedition including the first Qatari and first Palestinian man to attempt to reach the summit.

The team was trying to raise $1 million for education projects in Nepal.
