Oryx officially 'endangered' no more

Arabian Peninsula animal is now officially considered just "vulnerable".

    In a rare success story for wildlife watchers, one species has been saved from extinction.

    The status of the Arabian Oryx has officially changed from endangered to vulnerable, thanks to an intensive breeding and re-introduction programme.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanin Sadri has the details.
