Jordan Times: Salameh hoists Jordanian flag

AMMAN — Jordanian mountaineer Mostafa Salameh on Saturday registered a new achievement by reaching the South Pole within 38 days. Salameh spent 50 days in Antarctica during which he crossed 985 kilometres in very cold weather conditions, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

He also hoisted the Jordanian flag and the Hashemite banner on the farthest point in the southern hemisphere, becoming the first Arab to come this far.
