France: American "hobby" festival cancelled due to threats

"Satan worshipers" "pro-american", "pro-sarkozy", the telephone intimidations and death threats evoking Al-Qaida, received by the organizers of an American festival, caused the canceling of the 2nd annual American festival of Leisure activities in the Parc de St Cloud (Hauts de SEine) [walking distance from roland Garros stadium].

This is not the first time either. Last year, threats were send a month before the opening of the festival. Police had the time (last year) to research what happened and found that it was a band of young hooligans. This year they don't know who is the perpetrator and they don't want to take risk. It is being rescheduled for September to avoid any risk.
