Karneval floats feature giant Obama, naked Merkel and zombie bankers

Huge effigies of US President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and zombie bankers starred in Karneval parades across the Rhineland on Monday.

More than a million people braved the snow in Cologne to line the route of the seven-kilometre Rosenmontag parade, where revellers traditionally poke fun at current events and enjoy tonnes of sweets hurled from the travelling floats.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's alleged night with a call girl was rewarded with a huge figure showing a beaming premier surrounded by breasts.

Another float at Düsseldorf's parade showed Chancellor Merkel completely in buff chasing a CD with information on German tax dodgers.
