Rihanna canceled her show in Jakarta, Indonesia due to security reason. Her camp decided to pull off the concert while she and her crew were in Australia following travel advisory issued in the country after three Islamic militants convicted in the 2002 Bali bombing were executed last weekend. "They said Indonesia's security is not supportive," event promoter Troy Waroka told a local press.

Rihanna was supposed to perform at the sold-out gig in front of 6,000 concertgoers on November 14 in the country. A costly preparation had been arranged for the Friday concert including the rental of a private jet to pick up Rihanna from Singapore, the local publication reported.

Full refunds are available for fans who have no interest to wait for re-scheduling date which is expected to be set in either January or February 2009. "The concert will be postponed until January or February," Troy said. However, Rihanna hasn't yet announced any plan to re-schedule the scrapped show.
