My security settings block the images on Yahoo.. but from the thumbnail, and the description they gave, sounds like a mountain-wave cloud to me.
Not uncommon to get them here on CO (but usually larger). And they can make for awesome at sunset!

From the Yahoo article:
"The country's Meteorological Directorate told local media that the peculiar formation was an example of lens clouds which are generally formed as a result of strong wind fluctuations over hills and mountains. "
As you said, James.
