Brazil’s Anti-Terror Chief Fears Dirty Bomb Attack by ISIS at Rio Olympics


Things have not gone according to plan for the host nation in the lead up to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. The latest bit of news is that officials in Rio told those participating in activities in the faeces-infested water to keep their mouths closed as they swim.

That’s on the absurd and ridiculous level.

A bit more scary, there are now growing concerns that the terrorist group ISIS might be looking to coordinate a dirty bomb attack at the Olympics.

According to The Sun, officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are working with local authorities to help guard Rio from a potential terrorist attack.

Per the report.

“Brazil’s anti-terror chief has already admitted there is a ‘credible threat’ ISIS will target Rio next month and said ‘numerous measures’ are being taken to prevent any attack. Counter terrorism director Luiz Alberto Sallaberry said the threat had increased dramatically in recent months due to attacks across Europe.”

With what we have seen in Europe over the past year, this shouldn’t necessarily come as much of a surprise.
