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.
