Little Mermaid has no Shame!

Unknown offenders put a Muslim dress and head scarf on the famed Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen early Sunday May 20 2007, police said.

After receiving a telephone call, a police car was dispatched to the site and she was undressed, Copenhagen police spokesman Jorgen Thomsen said.

The Little Mermaid was created by Danish sculptor Edvard Eriksen in tribute to Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen.

Sitting on a rock at the entrance of the Copenhagen harbor since 1913, she draws an estimated 1 million visitors a year, and is occasionally targeted by vandals.

A police spokesman said the statue was draped in Muslim garb to protest the inclusion of Turkey in the European Union while local Muslim groups thought it was just because the little mermaid looked "indecent," and besides that, she was propably "cold!"
