AUSTRIA YANKS LEWD DEPICTION OF BUSH, QUEEN
VIENNA, Austria -- Her Majesty would not have been amused.]
Neither would President Bush or his French counterpart Jacques Chirac, over a Vienna art project depicting them naked and engaged in a sexual act with British Queen Elizabeth II.

The work of "euroPART", an independent artists group, the scenes being dispalce on electronic billboards across the Austrian capital were also embarassing for the government just days before the country assumes the European Union's rotatiing presidency Sunday.

Austrian media reported that the offending images were yanked Wednesday -- just a day after they started flashing at mototists -- on personal orders of Chancellot Wolfgang Schuessel.

Leading opposition party figures suggested Schuessel was at least indirectly responsible, saying the group had received about $1.2 million in government subsidies.

Schuessel spokewoman Heidi Glueck was quoted by the Austria Press Agency as saying the chancellor had been unaware of the billboards subject matter.
