The shadow of terrorism on the Olympic Games


Ten people were arrested in Brazil, including a minor, were suspected to be involved in the preparation of attacks during the Olympics, which will begin next month in Rio de Janeiro.

Some had been in contact with Islamist militants over the Internet and had sworn allegiance to the self-styled Islamic State.

The shadow of terrorism comes on the Olympics that already begin with the athletes ‘ doping scandal of the Russian Federation, chaos and social unrest caused by a severe economic crisis, the scandal that has engulfed the Brazilian Government Petrobrás and led to a great political instability and the threat of contagion of the virus Zika.

This edition of the Olympic Games takes place in a very tense and difficult climate both internationally, either in the same country, and certainly the Festival of sport and athletes will be affected by the great political tension and the thousands of differences between countries.

The risk of a terrorist attack against an event like the Olympics, which the militants Islamists hate precisely because it brings a message of peace and tolerance among peoples, is very high and we can only hope that at the end we can only speak of enterprises of athletes and medals.
