This gives you some insight into how journalism works here.
The BBI story is false. No pig toys removed. (As it it also untrue that couples caught kissing or holding hands inside the center are reprimanded.) The tale was let out by people apparently interested in flaming anti-Islamic sentiments, according to a friend who describes himself as a "military secularist."
Also untrue: the 1984 Olympic torch is safe in an Olympic museum in Switzerland. The E-bay item is probably a fake.
