The landmark Kuwait Towers, the site of the celebrations, shone magnificently as fireworks and laser drew images of the country's history, depicting major events of the past since Kuwait was established, through the Iraqi invasion and last year's Imam Al-Sade Mosque terrorist attack. Special focus was given to His Highness the Amir's wise leadership and diplomacy.
