Usually picturesque under bright sunshine, the famous southern Croatian tourist spot of Dubrovnik was impossible to make out today, as sand and dust-laden winds, originating in the Sahara desert in North Africa, created an orange fog over the city…

“In my sixty years of living in Dubrovnik I have never experienced anything like this before,” explained a local resident to The Dubrovnik Times. “Let’s just hope that it doesn’t start to rain as the whole city will be covered in sand,” he added.
