The World Heritage Committee inscribed three new cultural sites on the World Heritage List this afternoon: Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral Churches of Cefalú and Monreale in Italy; Baptism Site “Bethany Beyond the Jordan” (Al-Maghtas) in Jordan and Rock Art in the Hail Region of Saudi Arabia.

Rock Art in the Hail Region of Saudi Arabia —This site includes two components situated in a desert landscape: Jabel Umm Sinman at Jubbah and the Jabal al-Manjor and Raat at Shuwaymis. A lake once situated at the foot of the Umm Sinman hill range that has now disappeared used to be a source of fresh water for people and animals in the southern part of the Great Narfoud Desert. The ancestors of today’s Arab populations have left traces of their passages in numerous petroglyphs and inscriptions on the rock face. Jabal al-Manjor and Raat form the rocky escarpment of a wadi now covered in sand. They show numerous representations of human and animal figures covering 10,000 years of history. >>

The Al-Haramain Train project is described as the largest public transportation project in the Middle East. This vital and strategic project is one of the implementation schemes of the mass expansion of the Saudi railway across the country.
The project’s importance stems from many considerations, primarily the increasing numbers of pilgrims, visitors, residents and worshipers coming to the country, Madinah and Makkah year after year.
The train will greatly reduce the congestion on the roads between Makkah and Madinah, in addition to Jeddah governorate. It will also reduce road traffic accidents and pollution levels, resulting from vehicles’ fuel emissions. Additionally, it will provide job opportunities for Saudi youths after they get the necessary training and qualifications on the operation and maintenance tasks. >>

Richard Branson’s Virgin Mobile launches in Saudi Arabia

Virgin Mobile Middle East & Africa (VMMEA), part-owned by British entrepreneur Richard Branson's Virgin Group, launched telecoms services in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, beginning the biggest shake-up in the kingdom's telecoms sector in six years.

VMMEA is launching two brands after benefiting from the national telecoms regulator's decision to order the country's three mobile operators to each host a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in an effort to stimulate competition.

The two brands being launched by VMMEA are Virgin Mobile KSA, aimed at the youth market, and FRiENDi mobile KSA, targeting Saudi's expatriate workers. >>
