Kuwait Ministry of Communications Exterior  Smoke from the oil fires traveled 20-75 km to cause severe air pollution in Kuwait City. For months, the entire region was wrapped in a depressing sunless haze with a fallout of black soot. The damaged Ministry of Communications building is in the background. Behind it is the damaged Al-Wataniya shopping mall. The unfinished Telecommunications Tower, renamed Liberation Tower on completion in 1993, is in the foreground. A roadblock has been improvised with office furniture and fence railings that had been intended for Iraqi plunder.
