Activist raises Yemen’s flag over Mount Everest calling for ‘peace’ | Al Arabiya
From the South base camp in Nepal of Mount Everest – the highest mountain in the world – activist Osman al-Hadi rasied the Yemeni flag calling for “peace and coexistence” in the country.
Al-Hadi started the climb in late August and arrived at the South base camp at 5,545 meters of the 8,848 meter climb to the peak of Mount Everest in early September, to raise the flag of Yemen in order to shed light on the humanitarian situation in his home country and call for the establishment of peace.
Hadi is the first Yemeni national to reach this main camp of the summit, which took him 15 days to climb.
