[Photo/Agencies]RIO DE JANEIRO — The Brazilian police are investigating a potential terrorist cell made up of 15 members, who may have been planning terrorist acts during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in August.The private Globo TV station broadcast a report on Monday, including news of a police investigation, in which one of its journalists had infiltrated this group, which was seeking to buy weapons in Paraguay in order to shoot people during the Games.
The report also said that the group saw the Games as an “opportunity” to “hit the enemy”.
The investigations into this new group come on the heels of the dismantling of another terrorist group of 12 people, captured between July 21 and 24, which had allegedly sworn loyalty to the Islamic State and were also planning attacks during the Olympics.
After the July 14 terrorist attack in Nice, France, the Brazilian government has tightened security provisions for the Olympic Games, with stronger checks at airports and ports and over 87,000 soldiers, police and security forces on the streets and at key venues. 0Related StoriesRio Olympic Village opens its gateRio 2016 hires 500-strong task force to fix village problemsIOC decisions on participation of Russian athletes in Rio OlympicsIOC will not impose blanket ban on Russia for Rio OlympicsRio Olympic bus route closed after shootoutRussia facing Rio Paralympic suspensionPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsSouth China SeaEU referendumUS electionG20 summitDPRKIran nuclear talksChina and JapanGreek debt crisisGaza woeRefugee crisisReporters JournalAmericans feeling forced to choose the lesser of two evilsWorld War II Dixie Mission revisited, and a fallen hero rememberedSoup-slurpers vs nose-blowers: Who are more revolting at dinner table?HighlightsSeminars on South China Sea issuePremier Li visits Mongolia, attend ASEMSouth China Sea issue…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
