A terrorist group based in western China threatens to attack the upcoming Beijing Olympics, and claims responsibility for last week's deadly bus bombings in China in a new propaganda video released July 25.
The Turkistan Islamic Party video, entitled "Our Blessed Jihad in Yunnan," warns spectators and athletes, "particularly the Muslims," not to attend the Beijing Games, which are scheduled to begin in two weeks on Aug. 8.
"Our aim is to target the most critical points related to the Olympics. We will try to attack Chinese central cities severely using the tactics that have never been employed," the group's leader, Commander Seyfullah said, according to a translation of the video provided by IntelCenter, a Washington, D.C.-based firm that monitors terrorism.
At the top of the video a sign for the Beijing Olympic Games is engulfed in flames
The video is about three and a half minutes in length, and resembles al Qaeda propaganda videos in structure.
Warning Over Olympic Health Risk
All Olympic athletes are in danger of suffering severe asthma attacks, skin conditions, infections and sickness due to Beijing's pollution.
His warning comes after an exclusive Sky News report revealed pollution levels are worse than ever in the Chinese capital - 16 times worse than in London - despite attempts to ban cars and reduce factory emissions.
The International Olympic Committee has said it will reschedule events if air pollution is a threat to athletes' health, saying any decisions would be made just prior to or during the event.
