Denver Library Yanks Spanish Books

The Associated Press Reports library workers are pulling thousands of Spanish-language comic books from the shelves following complaints of pornographic and violent content while officials determine whether some books should be permanently removed.

About 6,500 "fotonovelas," popular in Mexico and other Latin American countries, have been temporarily recalled from Denver Public Library branches, library spokeswoman Celeste Jackson said on Thursday. The review could be completed by next week.
