Rihanna cancels Indonesia show over security
Dive Purnomo, a spokeswoman for the event organizer, said Rihanns had been scheduled to perform before a sold-out crowd of 6,000 in the capital, Jakarta, the AP reports.
But she changed her mind while in Australia, one of several countries that issued a travel advisory to citizens in Indonesia after the weekend executions of three Islamic militants convicted in the 2002 Bali bombings. The men called on followers to carry out revenge attacks if their deaths by firing squad went ahead.
Purnomo hoped Rihanna would show uo in Jakarta in January, but we wouldn't hold our breath if we were him.
