Dubai's property 'black hole'

Investors who bought at the peak of the boom wonder where all their money has disappeared.

    Ever since its property bubble burst spectacularly in late 2008, Dubai has been struggling to revive its shattered image. 

    But those investors who bought at the peak of the real-estate boom in the trading hub of the UAE say they still have no idea where their hundreds of thousands of dollars have gone.

    And no one, not even the real-estate regulator, seems willing to help.
