Non-U.S. Inflation Protected Securities?

Is there an index fund or ETF that invests in inflation-protected securities from outside the US? I've seen these mentioned in a few books, but don't know if they are available to US investors.

I believe WIP has these securities.

In addition to WIP -- I was curious, also, and did this Google search:

"inflation-protected securities" +non-us +etf - Google Search

The listing for ETF Trends says this:

5. Non-U.S. Stocks. Remember this works both ways: If inflation does not turn out to be a problem here in the United States and the U.S. dollar actually strengthens versus other currencies, your foreign stock investments will suffer. There are dozens of international ETFs that hold non-U.S. stocks – visit the provider’s page to find out the holdings and decide whether they’re right for you.
A slightly modified Google search found this thread at Boogleheads that has this question somewhere in it (I didn't read it, yet).

You can also add BWX and BWZ to your pile to research. Both intl bond ETF's managed by, I think, Barclays.
