Croatia festival cancels Houellebecq play on security concerns
by Zoran Radosavljevic
The Dubrovnik Summer Festival has canceled a planned premiere of a play by French author Michel Houellebecq, known for stirring controversy with his views of Islam, after police said it would present a security concern.
The play, based on his novel Les Particules Elementaires, was to open in Dubrovnik in July but the Dubrovnik county prefect had asked the intelligence service and police for a security assessment.
A police statement said the service concluded the show would represent a security risk.
