Dubai:  In a dazzling ceremony marked by laser shows, water-borne acrobatics and fireworks, His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai inaugurated the  Dubai Water Canal  on Wednesday.


Shaikh Mohammad marked the opening by pressing on an electronic panel, flashing an image of Burj Khalifa on massive screens arranged on the canal banks, and sending laser beams racing through and along its bridges.


Shaikh Mohammad, accompanied by Crown Prince of Dubai Shaikh Hamdan and Deputy Ruler of Dubai Shaikh Maktoum, then took a boat ride from Jumeirah Bay Island towards the Dubai Water Canal, followed by a flotilla of ferries and abras boarded by officials and engineers who worked on the  Dh2.7-billion ($730 million)  project.
