Published: Updated:

A picture of girl running next to a camel went viral in Saudi Arabia with many asking who the girl was.

The girl, Nora al-Subaie, was pictured running next to her uncle’s camel during a race held at Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz Camel Festival currently being held in al-Sayaheed, a small village in the Rumah governorate of Riyadh province.

Her father told Al Arabiya that his daughter requested to run next to the camel during one of the festival’s competition and denied that she had posed for the photo in any way.

The festival, the biggest of its kind in the region, is being held from March 19 until April 15.
