A Web site which reputedly first brought together children's television icon Bert of "Sesame Street" fame and the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden, has been shut down by its creator.
The site, operated by a Dutch man who identifies himself on his site only as "J-roen," carried the following message on Friday: "Due to the great amount of comments (both positive and negative) since a picture from this Web site was recently featured in a collage poster, I have decided to take this section of the site offline."
The author did not respond to e-mails seeking comment.
On the site was a spoof photo of Bert the Muppet appearing beside bin Laden, the prime suspect in the September 11 jetliner hijacking attacks in the United States.
The image apparently was downloaded off the Internet along with other images of bin Laden and arranged together on to a montage placard.
