France 'informed of planned terror attack on Rio Olympic team'
If anyone is going to roll, murder Olympics tourists, it will be Brazilian thugs, not some ISIS wannabe's. The 2016 Olympics look to be a huge bust.
More after the break.
"The total number of security personnel including police will be more than 85,000 – more than double the number for London 2012.
“If necessary, we will deploy more,” said Raul Jungmann, defence minister. “There will be no lack of security in Rio de Janeiro.”
From July 15 there will be 6,000 soldiers on the streets of Rio with the defence operation officially beginning when the Athletes’ Village opens on July 24. It will include 12 ships, 70 armoured vehicles, and 28 helicopters.
Intelligence officers from the UK, US, Spain, Belgium, France, Argentina and Paraguay will also support Brazilian agencies at an Integrated Anti-Terror Centre in Rio while there will also be other centres set up in football host cities and in the capital.
"In all areas, spheres and predetermined places inside and outside the arenas we will have a defense, security and intelligence scheme that will meet all the requirements of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), ensuring security and peace in the hosting of these Games," Mr Jungmann added."
I feel better already. Let's just hope the failed state formerly known as Brazil has some money to pay a few of these security forces.
