PICTURE: Meteorite strike a hoax

"A telephone company has confessed to dreaming up a purported meteorite strike in Latvia as a publicity stunt.

A spokesman for the firm was quoted by the Leta news agency as saying the hoax had been meant to "inspire Latvia" and give the world a rest from the economic crisis headlines about the Baltic state's deep economic crisis.

He said the firm would reimburse the cash-strapped emergency services who had rushed to the scene.
