I gather that Arabic sentences do go on and on. And on. I've tried to make the second one more readable by breaking it into paragraphs. This seems to be the only report so far; several people have linked to it on the #Coruna hashtag that Arabic speakers use, but I don't find any other stories in today's Saudi media. Mike Coston at Avian Flu Diary has the story with some useful context.
