Two days ago, Abbas Sedri saved another
life - up in the snow-capped mountain peaks which can be glimpsed through
the date palms in his garden. He fought his way along the cliffs in the
biting cold, through snow and ice. His colleagues from the Red Crescent,
with respect in their voices, call him the "mountain rescuer".
All the 50-year-old man will say is "It was not an easy task".
Behind him, to the left and the right,
are two small prefabricated huts, with yellow clinkers shining in between.
