Interpol chief warns of virus attack at sports event

POLICE across the world say there is no doubt that terrorists are planning to release a plague virus at a major sports event.

Experts are convinced that the bacteria will be distributed using something as simple as a child’s plastic horn.

With the Beijing Olympics just months away and the World Cup to be held in South Africa in 2010, there are plenty of opportunities for an attack.

Although it is more than six years before Scotland hosts the Commonwealth Games, its organisers say they are not taking anything for granted. A conference, codenamed ‘Black Death’ and organised by Interpol, was held last week in Lyon, France.

Ronald Noble, Interpol’s general secretary, told delegates about the threat posed by bio-terrorists.

He said: “We will deal with a worst-case scenario of global proportion – terrorists that produce large amounts of a deadly bacteria, [or] plague – and disseminate it using hundreds of simple horns, the kind which children use at sporting events. In their wake are mass casualties and even greater disruption to society.”

Security sources say the idea of terrorists using toy horns to distribute a deadly virus is a significant possibility.

One insider told Scotland on Sunday: “This has come from information received from the authorities in Indonesia, where references to such a form of attack were discovered.”
