The new World's Tallest Building

Burj Dubai has been identified as the new tallest building in the world which is 828 metres (2717ft) at the moment. This makes the building twice the height of Empire State Building.

At the opening ceremony, thousands of residents and tourists crowded around the base of the half-mile tall tower, which is at least 160 storeys high.

Dubai's ruler unveiled a plaque, kicking off inaugural festivities.

They included traditional Gulf Arab dance performances and skydivers with parachutes emblazoned with the colours of the UAE flag.
