ISIS to target Italian, French & Spanish beach resorts


Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) is planning terrorist attacks on resorts in southern Europe, including in France, Italy and Spain, a report says, adding that suicide bombers are expected to be disguised as beach vendors.

German Federal Intelligence Service was informed by the Italian intelligence about a threat in European resorts by ISIS, Das Bild newspaper said. The information about the coming attacks was reportedly received from Africa.

The report speculates the potential attackers could mostly come from Senegal, where the Boko Haram terrorist group, which pledged loyalty to IS in 2015, is active.

According to the information, the extremists are expected to be dressed as vendors at the European resorts, selling things like sunglasses, drinks and ice cream.

The militants are going to use automatic weapons or explosive devices in their attacks, the report states. Their bombs may be buried under sunbeds at the resorts.
