INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Hill & Knowlton, the public relations giant, has quit working for the Church of Scientology because it posed a conflict with another of its clients, a top agency official said Friday.

The PR firm was also under pressure from its parent, WPP Group PLC, to drop the Scientologists, but the agency executive said that was not the determining factor in Hill & Knowlton's decision.

WPP also owns the ad agency J. Walter Thompson, whose clients include Eli Lilly & Co., an Indianapolis-based drugmaker that has been feuding with the Scientologists over Prozac, a Lilly anti-depressant drug.
