Qatar in biggest ever daytime fireworks show

top chinese artist An art display that is being billed as the biggest ever daytime fireworks show has taken place in Doha, the Qatari capital.

The event is the latest in a series by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang, the artist who creaked a work for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.

The artist, who is based in New York, has spent nearly two months in Qatar creating a series of works, which use explosives normally used by the military as anti-missile decoys.

The cost of the display has not been revealed, but it was funded in full by the Qatar Museum Authority.

Al Jazeera’s Joanna Blundell reports from Doha.

    do you mean you’ve never been searched by security? or that you haven’t searched for info about the Russian ambassador? if it’s the latter, just google “russian ambassador roughed up in doha”.

    @thelegendarylord, a 2008 study by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, in conjunction with the Beijing Academy of the CCP and the Research Center for State Council, found that 2,932 out of China’s wealthiest 3,220 Yuan Billionaires are children of senior party officials. Who in China wishes to help the poor? The CCP regime? It only does whatever is necessary to prevent a continuation of the 1911 People’s Revolution, hijacked by Mao and perpetuated by the CCP..

    one time, coming in, I was asked, and I said “No” because I thought they were joking (comparing my shaved head with Triple X) and then I walked out of the airport, nothing dramatic. Another time I was asked if I was carrying alcohol, again I said “No” and realised when I got home that I had carried in 6 bottles of Indonesian Sambal taped together and looking like a six pack of beer.
