'Extremist' Book for Kids

A Jehovah’s Witness book banned as extremist was found in a children’s library in the Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous district, local prosecutors said on their web site Wednesday.

Prosecutors have requested that the book — a Russian translation of “Life — How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation?” — be removed from the library in the town of Kogalym. It was unclear why the book, banned in 2009, was in the library.
