Tire, Lebanon (Reuters) A protest by Muslim clerics torpedoed a Brazilian samba show in the Lebanese city of Tire on Thursday, local officials said.
A statement by the clerics condemned plans for the open-air display by a dance troupe that has been touring Lebanon.
"We support tourism but are against obscenity," said Sheikh Ali Yassin, who heads a group of clerics in the predominantly Shi'ite Muslim city.
The local council responded by cancelling the show after consulting politicians and security officials, officials said.

Coming to a town near you.
I see that one poor reporter dropped his contact lens...
probably half of those dancers are men
Samaba Dancing.....NO!!! Indecent.
Cutting Heads off Infidels....Sure.
Remember the motto of the Muslim cleric:
“Fire bad! Four legs bad! Two legs good! What is the law? Sharia!”
Not very diversity-minded of them.
The Religion of Cooties strikes again.
