Singer faces the music

A Turkish pop singer has been sentenced to write out Turkey's lengthy national anthem along with a five-page critique of it after a court found her guilty of casting ethnic slurs at a concert, newspapers said yesterday.

Businessmen from the Kurdish city of Diyarbakir, in the impoverished southeast, which has been troubled for years by separatist violence, took Demet Akalin to court over her comments.
