Mother! director 'furious' over Sydney mural bungle These are external links and will open in a new window Image caption A painted advert for a new Jennifer Lawrence film has caused controversy Hollywood director Darren Aronofsky has apologised after an advertising agency painted over an "iconic" Sydney mural with a promotion for his new movie. The advert for Mother!, depicting star Jennifer Lawrence, was painted without approval by local authorities. It covered a well-known 20-year-old mural by a local artist on a building in Newtown, one of Sydney's most vibrant suburbs. Aronofsky said he was embarrassed about the incident, which had angered locals. The original mural depicted animals in an urban streetscape below the words "it's like a jungle sometimes" - a reference to a famous song by hip hop group Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. The artist said he wanted to remain anonymous. "The mural was mean to be something that represented how I was feeling at the time and I was feeling beside myself, depressed and definitely a little suicidal, which is hard to say now," he told the Australian Broadcasting Corp .

Cameroon, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mauritania and Malawi are among the countries that have adopted or announced such bans. Some 100 million plastic bags are handed out every year in Kenya by supermarkets alone, according to the UN Environmental Programme.
