Al-Qaeda Group Calls for Terror Attacks on Rio Olympics
Thu Jul 21, 2016 15:57:46

Terrorist groups linked to terror network al Qaeda are urging their followers to carry out 'lone wolf attacks at the Olympics in Rio targeting American, British and French athletes.

The 2016 Games are set to begin in just over two weeks in Brazil where security is set to be tight throughout the event.

It comes after it was revealed last week that a Brazilian group has become the first organisation in South America to pledge allegiance to ISIS.

However, now it has emerged that alQaeda fanatics are issuing a number of directives on social media urging attacks against athletes.

'Your chance to take part in the global Jihad is here! Your chance to be a martyr is here!'

They are also told that it is easy to obtain a visa to travel to Brazil and that guns are widely available in the slums of Rio.

Among the ideas for attacks, they include poisoning food, using small drones with explosives and kidnapping athletes.

They also suggest pouring oil on to roads in a bid to cause road accidents, Daily Mail reported.
