$16 Million Fireworks Show in Kuwait Sets World Record
Celebrating a golden jubilee Kuwait style: Gulf state spends $16 Million to put on the biggest firework display of all time.
A dazzling array of colours illuminated the skies above the country's capital of Kuwait City as a staggering 77,282 fireworks were launched over the period of an hour.
The visual presentation marked 50 years to the day since the late emir Sheikh Abdullah al-Salem al-Sabah announced that Kuwait had become the first Arab state in the Gulf to issue a constitution and have a parliament.
