A picture of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's tush in a British newspaper has triggered an uproar in the German government and press.
The notoriously bottom-feeding British Sun reproduced photos of Merkel on vacation, showing her from the back changing into a bathing suit.
A government spokesman accused the Sun of voyeurism. A newspaper promised that the Germans would thrash the Brits for this in the World Cup.
"I'm Big in the Bumdestag," was the Sun caption.
