Racing star hopes in cloned camel

Trail-blazing lab in Dubai aims to change face of one of Arabian Peninsula's oldest sports.

    The world's first cloning of a camel took place in a laboratory at the Camel Reproduction Centre in the United Arab Emirates.

    Scientists there now hope their second successful cloned camel, created from a skin cell of an elite racing camel owned by Dubai's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, will change the face of one of the oldest sports in the Arabian Peninsula.
