Business newspaper looks to wipe out pranksters

The Russian business newspaper, Kommersant, has found itself the target of a practical joke. Youths handed out toilet paper with excerpts from the newspapers articles on the streets of Moscow.

Rolls of the toilet paper also appeared in the bathrooms of the Russian Lower House of Parliament, the State Duma.

The head of the caretaking department said he didn't know how the rolls made it into the building and ordered their removal.

The newspaper has threatened to call for a criminal investigation into the prank, citing copyright infringement and tax evasion among other charges.
