The new Massalikoul Djinane mosque, said to be West Africa's largest, opens in Dakar, Senegal.

Work on the 30,000-capacity Massalikoul Djinane ("The Paths to Paradise") mosque began a decade ago on a swampy six-hectare site in the poor area of Bopp, on land donated by the government of this 90-percent Muslim nation.
