Public figures like Irrfan needs our encouragement. #Terrorism #Islam #Hinduism #Kabul #Ramzan #Baghdad: #Dhaka #Shia #Irrfan Khan #Sunni #islamic-state #ISIS #NICE #Christanity #Ayyan Hirsi Ali #terrorism and religion #Id-ul-Fitr #reformation in Islam

Brazil holds terror suspects, seeks leads about possible Olympic threat | Reuters

BRASILIA Brazil held 10 presumed Islamist militants in isolation cells at a maximum security jail on Friday as police combed their computers and mobile phones for information about possible threats to next month's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

His statements, however, did not go down well at ABIN, Brazil's intelligence agency, or the Federal Police, where sources told Reuters the minister had underplayed the terrorist threat by portraying the group as a bunch of crazy young men #Sports #United States #Islam #markets #Security #Paraguay
