The Mina Plaza Towers in the capital was razed to the ground in 10 seconds on Friday morning, to make way for a major redevelopment project.

The 144 floors of the abandoned towers were demolished using a "controlled explosion".

Authorities had put in place strict safety measures to "mitigate the effects of the demolition and control dust clouds".

The redevelopment project in Mina Zayed area will include renovating existing souks, building new fresh food markets as well as dedicated facilities for dates, carpets, plants and wholesale trading.

Existing shops will remain open while work is being carried out, and will be transferred to their new location on completion of the projects.
