Now who would have thought this?
Irish republican terrorists could attack the Olympics while American and Israeli athletes may be a target for al Qaeda, MI5 fears. In its annual report, the ISC said Jonathan Evans, the director general of MI5, had highlighted three potential treats to the Olympics.
: An attack by al Qaeda and its affiliates – particularly on US or Israeli nationals.
: An attack or a hoax by Irish republican terrorist groups aimed at causing disruption rather than mass casualties.
: Clashes between rival groups or ethnicities present in London during the Games who would not normally be considered a security threat to the UK.
Wonder who the “ethnicities” might be in the third point raised? Still, interesting to see Irish terrorism is still world class.
