The singer Jennifer Lopez has angered Greek Cypriots by agreeing to perform in Turkish-held northern Cyprus.

She is to mark her 41st birthday by staying at the "single biggest hotel project both sides of the island" in exchange for a one-off concert on 24 July to celebrate its opening.

So far 7,000 people have signed up to a Facebook campaign demanding that the Latina star pull out.

North Cyprus has been a pariah state since it was occupied by the Turkish army in 1974.
