U.S. Borders bookstores shelve `Tintin'

U.S. Borders bookstores shelve `Tintin': "Tintin in the Congo," an illustrated work removed from the children's section of Borders Group, Inc., stores in Britain because of allegations of racism, will receive similar treatment by the superstore chain in the United States. "Borders is committed to carrying a wide range of materials and supporting our customers' right to choose what to read and what to buy. That said, we also are also committed to acting responsibly as a retailer and with sensitivity to all of the communities we serve," according to a Borders statement issued Monday.
