"We welcome you to the Olympics."
- Call me a "Crazy Blogger", which I am, but it is very hard to have domestic Muslim terrorism unless you go out of your way to import Muslims.
(London Daily Mail) - A Brazilian extremist group has become the first orgainsation in South America to pledge allegiance to ISIS, sparking further fears for a terror attack at the Rio Olympics.
The pledge was spotted by SITE Intelligence, a jihadi monitoring group, on ISIS's messaging app of choice - Telegram.
In the Telegram channel titled Ansar al-Khilafah #Brazil, the Brazilian jihadis announced their dedication to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
It comes less than three weeks before the 2016 Olympic Games are set to begin in Rio de Janeiro on August 5.
Meanwhile, France was last week informed of a planned terror attack on its team at the Games, according to the head of military intelligence.
The plans were revealed by General Christophe Gomart, head of the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DRM), at a parliamentary commission in May investigating the attacks in Paris in January and November last year which left 147 people dead.
In the report on the planned Rio attack, Gomart told the commission that he had been informed of the plot - planned by a Brazilian national - 'by our partners'.
No other details on the claims were made available by the French authorities.
In early July, the Brazilian Minister of Justice, Alexandre Moraes, said a jihadist attack in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympics was a 'possibility' but 'not a probability'.
Some 85,000 members of the security forces - 47,000 policemen and 38,000 soldiers - will be mobilised to ensure the safety of 10,500 athletes as well as officials, journalists and tourists from around the world expected for the Games which run from August 5-21.
Brazilian officials said on Friday that security preparations for the upcoming Olympics will be reviewed after the devastating attack in Nice, France.
