Terrorist threat over Beijing Olympics ceremony

Terrorist threat over Beijing Olympics ceremony

Even though China has declared it is ready to stage one of the greatest Olympics ever, a new terrorist threat is hanging over the opening ceremony.

As the world's best athletes have poured into Beijing, a Chinese Islamic group has threatened to attack the Olympics through a new video ...
warns Muslims to avoid being on planes, trains and buses.

The video, released by the Turkistan Islamic Party, which seeks independence for China’s western Xinjiang region, features graphics showing a burning Olympics logo and an explosion imposed over an Olympic venue.

The militants are believed to be based in Pakistan, where security experts say core members have received training from al-Qaeda.

Last month, the group claimed responsibility for a series of bus bombings in China.

The speaker in the six-minute video is seen to be carrying a rifle and wears a black turban which covers his face.

He speaks in the language of the Uighurs, a largely Muslim minority in China’s western Xinjiang territory.

The man warns: 'Do not stay on the same bus, on the same train, on the same plane, in the same buildings, or any place the Chinese go.'

Terrorism experts have warned if the rebels strike, it will be in less-protected areas, away from highly visible presence of security forces.

More than 100,000 soldiers and police are guarding Beijing and other Olympic cities.

This week, Chinese authorities admitted Uighurs had staged one of the most audacious attacks in years in Xinjiang.

The men stole a truck and rammed it into a group of 60 border police in a small city near the border with Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The men, who were later arrested, continued the attack with homemade bombs and knives, killing 16 police.

(AGI) - Washington, 7 August - On the eve of the opening of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the Turkistan Islamic Party, a separatist formation of Uighurs from Xingjian with ties to al Qaeda, has once more threatened attacks on the Olympic Games in a new video. The video, dated first August, shows the Beijing 2008 logo in flames and an explosion at one of the city's Olympic stadia. The video was found by the IntelCenter organisation, specialists in monitoring extremist sites.
Lasting six minutes the Apocalyptic images are followed by that of a masked man wearing a turban and armed with a machine gun.
According to Site Intelligence Group, another organisation that tracks extremist group activity on the Web, the man addresses Moslems telling them to keep their children away from the Olympics and warns them "not to travel on the same buses, trains or aircraft, or to remain in the same buildings or in any place used by Chinese". On 23 July the same Turkistan Islamic Party had claimed responsibility for a series of attacks over recent months and threatened to strike once more with "tactics never used before" during the Olympics. In the last tape, Commander Seyfullah had claimed responsibility for the bombing of a bus in Shanghai on 5 May which had killed three, as well as for a tractor-bomb assault on a police station in Wenzhou on 17 July and the following bombings of three buses in Yunnan province.
