    Background: A HOARD OF MORE THAN 1,100 PAINTINGS HIDDEN IN A DISUSED SALT MINE NEAR SALZBURG, AUSTRIA BY WORLD WAR TWO NAZIS WAS "A LOT OF RUBBISH" AN AUSTRIAN EDUCATION MINISTRY SPOKESMAN SAID YESTERDAY (TUESDAY).

    A HUNDRED NEWSMEN TRUDGED IN SINGLE FILE YESTERDAY ALONG A MILE OF TUNNELS, TO INVESTIGATE REPORTS THAT HIDDEN AWAY WERE "ART TREASURES" WORTH A FORTUNE AND INCLUDING REMBRANDTS AND WORKS BY RUBENS.

    BUT WHEN REPORTERS EXAMINED THE STACKED PAINTINGS THEY FOUND THEY WERE FADED WATER COLOURS AND CHOCOLATE BOX PORTRAITS BY UNKNOWN EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH CENTURY HUNGARIAN ARTISTS.

    MEANWHILE, AT NEARBY LAKE TOPLITZ, TV CAMERAS AND DIVING CREWS WERE PROBING THE DEPTHS IN SEARCH OF A REPUTED HOARD OF NAZI LOOT AND SECRET DOCUMENTS.
