Inside Africa's tallest statue - in Senegal

When Africa's tallest statue was completed in Senegal six years ago, there were some critics who thought it was rather extravagant.

The 49 metre African Renaissance Monument is said to have cost the country some $27m (£19m), which many said should have been spent elsewhere.

But many tourists find the city's landmark very attractive.
