US Says Has Information On Plans For Terrorist Attacks In South Africa

The U.S. government has received information that terrorist groups are planning to carry out attacks against places where its citizens congregate in shopping areas in South Africa, its embassy said Saturday.

“This information comes against the backdrop of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s public call for its adherents to carry out terrorist attacks globally during the upcoming month of Ramadan,” it said in a statement posted on its website.

It singled out upmarket shopping areas and malls in the commercial hub of Johannesburg and Cape Town, widely regarded as South Africa’s tourism capital, as the main target areas.

    Their is nothing more ISIS or Boku Harem can do to South Africa that the post apartheid South African government lead by President Jacob Zuma government hasn’t already done. Black people really do have trouble running their own affairs. The Islamists will fit right in with today’s South Africa. http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/258718/ongoing-tragedy-post-apartheid-south-africa-arnold-ahlert
