DUBAI (Reuters) - Dubai Mall, one of the world's largest shopping centers and a symbol of Dubai's grandeur, was partly closed on Thursday after an aquarium containing thousands of fish and other sea animals started leaking, police and witnesses said.

World

"There was a small problem, a simple crack, and the water leaked," a police official said, declining to be identified.

One of the largest tanks in the world, the aquarium features the world's largest viewing panel at 32.8 meters (107 ft 7 in) wide and 8.3 meters high.

It was designed to hold more than 33,000 living animals, representing more than 85 species including over 400 sharks and rays combined, according to Dubai Mall's website.

A Reuters witness said the mall, operated by Emaar Properties, had been partly evacuated and dozens of emergency vehicles were outside. Six divers entered the tank and appeared to be coordinating with workers outside the glass. Laborers mopped up water from the floor.

Emaar's chairman Mohammed Alabbar denied there was a leak in the aquarium, saying there was a "technical fault in the operating device", according to a statement carried on the country's official news agency WAM.

But a witness said water had been leaking from a crack in the aquarium glass.

"I saw a small crack in the aquarium glass and there was a little water coming out and a lot of water on the floor," said Ranjin, a 27-year old corporate secretary. "The police came and evacuated the area around the aquarium."

Emaar Properties, the Arab world's largest developer, came under scrutiny earlier in February when it closed the observation deck at Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower and the firm's flagship project, just a month after its fanfare opening.

I didn't really read the article but: "I saw a small crack in the aquarium glass and there was a little water coming out and a lot of water on the floor"

Dubai reminds me of one of those fake towns for an old western film. From the street all of the buildings look good, but when you go around back you find out it's made of plywood.

With all the sand they got over there, you'd think they could at least do glass right.

We need to send Shamu over there.

Where's Mitch with his rants? Should be here any second now.

They built this futuristic place, and now it's falling apart and no one is going.
