Naadam: Mongolia puts on its 'manly games' festival

Mongolia is holding its spectacular Naadam summer games - a centuries-old festival traditionally seen as a celebration of its three "men's games" of wrestling, horse-racing and archery.

The slightly less strenuous game of shagai, where bones are flicked like dice, also gets a look-in at the event in the capital, Ulan Bator.
