Tourists look at Dubai's Burj Khalifa (C), the world's tallest tower, on April 5, 2010. Dozens of visitors lined up to ascend the viewing deck of the glistening 160-storey tower, which reopened after an elevator breakdown forced its closure only a month after a glitzy inauguration in January 2010. Burj Khalifa's observatory reopened in the afternoon, after nearly a two-month closure that reportedly followed a February 6 incident when passengers were trapped in a malfunctioning elevator for 30 minutes.
