UK Television to Screen Controversial “Comedy” on Suicide Bombers for Anniversary of 9-11 (Video)
A British television channel will screen a controversial comedy on suicide bombers to mark the 10th anniversary of 9-11.
Four Lions will air days before the anniversary.
A controversial film about Muslim suicide bombers is to be screened as part of a season of programmes to mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11 on Channel 4.
It will show Four Lions by comedian Chris Morris days before memorials take place for the terrorist outrages in New York.
Insiders at the broadcaster say Morris wanted to air the 2010 film on the anniversary itself, but bosses refused.
In the comedy, a group of British terrorists bungle a plan to kill thousands of people at the London Marathon in a terror attack.
Channel 4 will premiere it alongside documentaries about heroes from the emergency services and the killing of Osama bin Laden.
