A mysterious lake that appeared suddenly in the Tunisian desert has created an impromptu "beach" in the drought-ridden country. No explanation has been given for the sudden appearance of "Gafsa Beach", which was discovered by shepherds three weeks ago. Authorities have warned that the water, which started off a crystalline blue and has since turned a murky green with algae, could be carcinogenic but Tunisians have not been able to resist cooling off in the 40C heat. via NZ Herald News.
