Mongolia To Erect Monument To The Beatles

From the not-quite-completely right translation:

A monument will be erected to the famous "Beatles" group in Ulaanbaatar city, the capital of Mongolia.

In support of the initiative, Prime Minister S.Bayar attended Friday a news conference called on this matter. Saying that the Beatles launched a globalization process, Mr. Premier told that he has been listening the Beatles' sings for over 40 years.

Standing close to a guitar sculptures of four "Beatles" will be made of bronze. Songs of Beatles and of Mongolian groups and singers will sound all day through. Over MNT 100 million is required for this project. On April 26, a donation concert will be given.

I checked the date of this and it was not April 1st. Original link here.
