Brazilian Jihadis May Disrupt Olypmics

Source: Independent, Monday 18 July 2016

A  Brazilian Jihadist group has pledged allegiance to Isis just weeks before the Olympic Games are due to take place in Rio de Janeiro.

According to extremist monitoring group SITE Intelligence, a channel on the Telegram app called Ansar al-Khilafah #Brazil has posted a message of support for Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The vast majority (around 95%) of Latin American Arabs are Christian. So this group is not representative.
