Pink paint has been sprayed on the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen, Denmark Saturday, March 3, 2007. Vandals covered Copenhagen's famed Little Mermaid statue with pink paint, a police spokesman said Saturday, but said it was not clear whether it was linked to two days of left-wing youth riots in the Danish capital. 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. She has been beheaded and doused in paint several times. Four years ago, the statue was blown off her perch by vandals who used explosives.(Source: Dayoo.com)
