    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.
