  • This photo taken Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 shows the brightly-colored newly painted fresco in the Serbian Orthodox Church of Christ's Resurrection in Montenegro's capital Podgorica. The fresco allegedly shows late Yugoslav autocratic leader Josip Broz Tito drowning in red fiery waves of hell with Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of the 1848 Communist Manifesto.
