Kuwait has entered the record books with the largest fireworks display ever after the wealthy Gulf state splashed out US$15m on a pyrotechnic show to mark the 50th anniversary of its constitution.

The show, held on Saturday evening in the capital Kuwait City, featured 77,282 fireworks launched over a period of one hour. The feat has secured the country a place in the Guiness Book of World records.
