Philippine 'phallic' art exhibit forced to close...

A controversial art exhibition in the Philippines pairing religious icons with phallic symbols has been forced to close after the president intervened.

The exhibition - which features a crucifix with a model penis attached - has provoked outrage in the mainly Catholic country.

President Benigno Aquino said the show, which launched in June, was offensive.

A day earlier former first lady Imelda Marcos joined the growing protest over the exhibition.

She said Mideo Cruz's exhibition at Manila's cultural centre had "desecrated" something sacred. More...
