A self-styled "suicide bomber" musician who sings in Arabic and performs in a burqa that covers her from head to foot is planning a "terror concert" in Britain.

The Russian teenage singer, known only as n.A.T.o, performs with her face covered by a veil in front of screens broadcasting images from al-Jazeera, the Arab television station, interspersed with flashing words such as "al-Qaeda", "Iraq" and "Nasdaq".

Her manager, Ivan Shapovalov, who last year launched the controversial lesbian pop duo t.A.T.u, plans to give a concert in Britain next month after successfully organising a similar event in Moscow on September 11.

The Moscow "terror concert" included invitations designed like aeroplane tickets.

Source. The story is old, so it doesn't mention the fact that she's been banned from the airwaves in Russia.
