Rihanna cancels Indonesia show

Pop star is afraid for her safety

Rihanna has announced that she will cancel her concert in Jakarta, Indonesia scheduled for tomorrow (November 14) because she is afraid for her safety.

The pop star decided to scrap the show following a travel advisory that was issued in the country following the execution of three Islamic militants last weekend after they were convicted of the 2002 Bali bombings, reports the Associated Press.

Rihanna was scheduled to play a sold-out show for 6,000 people in the Indonesian capitol. She has not announced any plans to rearrange the date.
