Plague of locusts descends on Mecca

It's been going on for a few days now and it's a big enough story to have gotten RT's attention. The report includes video and photos from various Twitterites. The caption, in Arabic, for the following photo is:
In the name of God the Merciful, we sent them flood, locusts, lice, frogs and blood verses of the hinges Vstkbroa and were criminals people

Google's Arabic might leave something to be desired, but I think there were floods in Saudi Arabia just a few days ago, so with the locusts, all that's missing is the frogs, lice, and blood. 

From the RT report, kudos to the Mecca sanitation department, which has been working overtime to clean up the locusts, but I do question the spraying of massive amounts of insecticides down water drains.
