Da Vinci Code confiscated in Jordan

Amman's daily al-Ghad said copies of the book were seized from a publishing house in the Jordanian capital and its owner, Ahmed Abou Tawk, was summoned for interrogation.

The paper quoted the president of the state's Publication Department, Ahmed Kodat, as saying other titles were confiscated in addition to "The Da Vinci Code" for undermining religions.

"This book is largely harmful for Christianity and was banned from many countries, including Lebanon," Kodat said, noting Christian clerics in Jordan demanded the ban.
