Elliott cancels Indonesia show

Hip-hop star Missy Elliott canceled a planned concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, after the U.S. Embassy warned Americans about potential terrorist attacks.

Elliott had been scheduled to perform today as part of an international tour.

"We apologize to all the fans of Missy Elliott because of this cancellation," a spokesman for Lunar Entertainment, the show's promoter, said Tuesday. He said ticket-holders will get refunds.

The U.S. Embassy issued a statement Friday reminding U.S. citizens to remain aware of the "continued potential for terrorist attacks against Americans or American interests in Indonesia and worldwide."

The embassy cited the continuing trials of Indonesian terror suspects, the country's presidential election campaign, anti-American sentiment stirred up by U.S. actions in Iraq and intelligence reports.
