Venezuela's government has started to move people from a half-built tower block in the capital, Caracas. The unfinished structure, which has become famous for its apocalyptic image, was abandoned during a banking crisis in the 1990s. 

Years later, with the encouragement of Venezuela's late President Hugo Chavez, poor residents took over the building, and now many families are reluctant to leave what has become known as the world's largest vertical slum, the so-called tower of David.
