Johannesburg, South Africa – Police arrested two people and seized two and a half tons of explosives from a house in Johannesburg. The police got the tip off anonymously via an emergency crime report hotline.
The police believe that the explosives would be used to blow up ATMs but with the world cup soccer coming up and thousands of tourists flooding into South Africa it may of well be used for any type of terrorism.
With threats from Al Queda police will have to make sure that the arms cache was to be used on ATMs and not people. The arms cache consists of almost 100 cases of explosives.
The border which were also opened for a few years now is supposedly closed now and there’s guards watching the border but claims still come in of thousands crossing the border between Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Al Quada did issue a terrorist threat.
