Russian Orthodox believers are up in arms because a company producing toilet paper has brought out a festive batch of rolls embossed with the image of an onion-domed church.

The offending loo rolls were found in a shop in the town of Fryazino near Moscow, according to the Echo of Moscow radio station.

The shop manager said they were just “harmless souvenirs” but churchgoers demanded that they be destroyed and called for the producers and sellers to be prosecuted under a new law against offending feelings of religious believers.
