IN an unprecedented event in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, Saudi women are claiming the world record for forming the largest-ever human pink ribbon at a rally to raise awareness about breast cancer
More than 4000 pink-clad women, Saudis and foreigners gathered today on a stadium pitch in Jeddah to form the giant ribbon - the global symbol of the fight against breast cancer - to break the previous record of 3640 set in Germany in 2007.
"We have conquered the world record of Germany with a human chain exceeding 4000 women," announced Princess Reema bint Bandar, a leader of the effort.
"We are pleased with this achievement and thank all those who supported us in the campaign for their efforts," she told the all-female crowd.
