Two more Indian states ban "The Da Vinci Code"

HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) - Two more Indian states have banned cinema screenings of the controversial "The Da Vinci Code," doubling the number of regions to have passed such orders after protests by minority Christians. Authorities in southern Andhra Pradesh state and Meghalaya in the Christian-dominated northeast blocked the film late on Thursday. Two other states, Punjab and Tamil Nadu, had earlier banned the film. The Andhra Pradesh government said many groups, including Christian organizations, had opposed the film which had been scheduled for release on Friday. [More]
