I have been to the place the new meteorite fell and I was lucky to find some pieces myself, you can find pieces from TOURJDALE to OUED AACHIR, the big piece I can say 20 kg, it was fragments and the nomads were there first and pick it up, each one has a piece, and I estimated a 20kg largest piece. you can find small holes in the trajectory of the fall, in the big one we find the sand burned and mixed with the very small fragments.
You can beleive me, because I was there and these are the photo:

I don't lie or pretend milligrams or hundereds of kilos, more than 50 per cent of this meteorites are small fragments without crust or have some. I learned on this list more than 500kg were found, and tents kilos were offered for sale, and I'm asking for photos of even 500g.
