NICOSIA: Cyprus was under pressure on Friday to withdraw its Eurovision Song Contest entry, after an anonymous caller threatened to “burn down” national broadcaster CyBC. The song, El Diablo, (Spanish for “the devil”), performed by Greek singer Elena Tsagrinou, has faced criticism over its title and English lyrics since its release on Wednesday.
