    A sculpture partly featuring Saudi Arabia's flag is being removed from the site of the 9/11 attack in New York.

    The artwork, called "Candy Nations", shows a series of large sweets wrapped in the flags of the G20 nations.

    However, after intense criticism, authorities have decided to move the exhibit away from Ground Zero.

    Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari has more.
