'Terrorist musical' under attack
A satirical musical about Islamic terrorism is causing protest ahead of its premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Jihad: The Musical, due to play at the C venue throughout August, is billed as a "madcap gallop through the wacky world of international terrorism".

But a petition on the Prime Minister's website calls for the "tasteless" show to be scrapped.

Composer Ben Scheuer defended the production, telling BBC Radio 4 it was "controversial because it is relevant".
