A controversial website by Norwegian shock rappers Gatas Parlament (Street Parliament) has returned to the web. Earlier this month Norwegian police closed the site, which urged Norwegians to put a bounty on the head of President Bush.

In a press release last week, the group said that they have moved the site out of Norway and will keep moving the site around if necessary. Gatas Parlament says that the police has no right to shut their site down and that the web page is not threat to the US president's safety.

The Norwegian rappers also encourage others to mirror the original site "on the condition that you don't alter our content". However, that original site - hosted by Lycos at http://killhimwith.bazooka.at/once - was again closed this weekend.

The website was originally a spoof on Tellhim.no, where artists took donations to pay for an anti-Bush campaign in the Washington Post. Band member Elling Borgersrud says the American embassy in Oslo, which pressed charges against the website, lacks "a sense of humor". ®
