Lunar New Year celebrated in Asia

Thousands of people across Asia celebrated the Lunar New Year - the Year of the Sheep - on Wednesday. The centuries-old bell at the top of the iconic Bell Tower in the Chinese capital Beijing was struck to mark the occasion. Over 8,000 people came to the Longhua Temple in Shanghai to say goodbye to the Year of the Horse and usher in the Sheep on the Chinese zodiac. In Hanoi, Vietnam, fireworks were set off around the city's central lake.
