SPANISH intelligence officers have intercepted jihadi plans to weaponise the Ebola virus for use against the West.
A blackmailer in Prague is also threatening to unleash the virus unless Czech authorities pay him €254 million via bitcoin.
The national secretary of state for security, Francisco Martinez, revealed that ISIS jihadists had been urged to develop ‘deadly chemical products’ and use ‘Ebola as a poisonous weapon’ via online messages.
So far it is thought that at least one terrorists organisation – the Japenese Aum Shinrikyo cult – has attempted to cultivate Ebola for attacks against the West.
The Czech authorities remain in talks with the Prague blackmailer, although initial deadlines for his payment have now passed.
