Middle East hit with bad weather

An unfamiliar scene in this part of the world, the Middle East has been hit with severe bad weather.

    Weeks of unseasonably warm weather across the Middle East have come to a rather abrupt, and dramatic stop.

    The warm weather was followed by snow, heavy rain and strong winds blasted the region on Sunday, killing five people, sinking a ship, and forcing the closure of a major Mediterranean port.
