Rihanna cancels Indonesia concert over security concerns


Published: Saturday, November 15, 2008

JAKARTA -- R&B singer Rihanna cancelled a sold-out concert in the Indonesian capital on Friday because of security concerns, event organizers said.

Indonesia has been on alert in case of reprisals after three Islamist militants were executed early this week for their parts in the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings that killed 202 people.

"The reason is because the security situation in Indonesia is not conducive," said Dive Poernomo, a spokeswoman for Showmaster Live, the event organizer.
