  • Brazil Arrested 10 ISIS Backers in Olympics Anti-Terror Swoop

    Ten Brazilians who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group were arrested Thursday, authorities announced, describing them as "amateurs" who discussed on social media the possibility of staging attacks during next month's Olympics.

    Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said in the capital, Brasilia, that the 10 were being held on two terrorism-related charges and that two more people were being sought. Authorities said any attack plan would have had little chance of coming to fruition, citing the group's lack of resources and skills. But officials and security experts argued that police were justified in being aggressive in light of "lone wolf" attacks staged in the U.S. and Europe by men with little or no training.

    Powered by a 61.9-second closing lap, Beyenu Degefa captured the women’s 3000m title, the first gold medal at these championships for Ethiopia.

    Biding her time in the lead pack for most of the race as Germany’s Konstanze Klosterhalfen dictated the tempo, the 17-year-old didn’t move into the lead until just two strides before the bell sounded for the final lap.

    Illustrating an impressive turn of speed, Degefa quickly built a gap that was never threatened, one she extended over the final 200 metres – which she covered in 30 seconds flat – en route to an 8:41.76 run, taking down in the process the 8:46.86 championship record held by China's Zhang Linli since 1992.
