Apparently, in 2006, the Swiss government gave away at least 30 cuckoo clocks to foreign embassies, with cuckoo (?) birds that come out and take pictures.
Upon learning that they had one of the clocks, a spokeswoman for the British ambassador reported that they have removed the clock from the dining room “as a precaution.”
The Swiss government is saying nothing, for the moment.
