Death in the Sahara
August 3, 2016 Leave a comment
It was a clear afternoon in Egypt’s western desert on Sept. 13, 2015, and an AH-64 Apache helicopter was gliding over the Abu Muharek dunes. A hot sun was beating down, though the helicopter’s pilots wouldn’t have felt it in their air-conditioned cabin. Below, just over the next ridge, 14 Mexican tourists had paused their desert safari to enjoy lunch.
