"While there have been no proven referee slayings since [1357], there have been several incidences of broom-tampering over the centuries, the most dangerous being the transformation of the referee's broom into a Portkey, so that he or she is whisked away from the match halfway through and turns up months later in the Sahara Desert."
Kennilworthy Whisp, Quidditch Through the Ages

The Sahara Desert is the world's largest hot desert, covering most of Northern Africa. An unidentified Quidditch referee once found himself transported there, as his broomstick was transformed into a Portkey halfway through a Quidditch match.[1] Gilderoy Lockhart once travelled to the Sahara Desert, or at least claimed to, though given the fraudulent nature of the majority of his achievements, it is possible that the photographic evidence was doctored.
