Terror fear puts Kylie Minogue at risk

domingo, 28 de septiembre de 2008 |

The pop princess is set to spin around for 2000 VIP guests at the opening of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai in November.

There are now fears the venue could be a target for al-Qaeda because it is seen by Islamist extremists as a symbol of decadence.

British spies are reportedly tracking claims the group plans to bomb the development on which the hotel stands, following talk of attacks in internet chatrooms.

According to the UK press, there has also been surveillance on a number of suspects who pose a credible threat to the building and the people at the party.

A fresh security alert has been ordered in the United Arab Emirates and the British Foreign Office has set its threat warning for the area at high.

Minogue will be paid $4.6 million for her performance before Hollywood stars, heads of state and billionaire businessmen on November 20.

The hotel is built on Palm Jumeirah - a complex of man-made isles off the Dubai coast where footballers, including David Beckham, own homes.

The $1.7 billion hotel will welcome its first guests on September 24.

While Minogue will be the main attraction, a giant fireworks display lighting up 43km of the palm-shaped shoreline and illuminating the entire man-made island will be the climax of the gala show.

The 1539-room hotel, set on 46ha, will include one of the largest man-made marine habitats in the world and several water parks, with up to 65,000 sea creatures on show.
