Priest Admits Madonna Bomb Hoax
A 63-year-old Dutch priest has confessed to making a hoax bomb threat in an attempt to stop a concert by US pop star Madonna, prosecutors say.
Her mock re-enactment of the crucifixion in one of the scenes offended some Christians during earlier shows in Italy and Germany. But the concerts in Amsterdam went ahead as planned on Sunday and Monday. A city official said the priest was arrested soon after making the call because he used his home phone. Emergency services quickly traced the number.
