China's tallest tower opens


The 101-storey Shanghai World Financial Centre, China's tallest building, has finally opened.

The office tower is 492m (1,614ft) tall and is ranked among the top six tallest buildings in the world. Construction was held up by both a financial crisis and, in August 2007, a fire.
