Controversial question removed

"WHERE are the weapons of mass destruction?" read a billboard that appeared on Wednesday morning under the hill of Bratislava castle.

It has now been taken down, according to the TASR news agency.

The billboard was erected on the morning of Wednesday February 23.

Akzent media, which owns the billboard stand, said it was put up illegally and without its approval.

"Akzent media is considering filing a criminal complaint against an anonymous offender for damaging private property because the billboard was pasted over a paid for
order," said Igor Slanina, commercial director of Akzent media.
