ISIS TERROR WARNING: Crazed jihadists ‘threaten to launch MAJOR ATTACK on Eurovision’


CRAZED Islamic State terrorists are feared to be planning a "major attack" on the Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden next month.

Eight fanatics have recently entered Stockholm after fighting for ISIS, also known as Daesh, in Iraq and Syria, according to the Daily Star.

One of the gang is said to have close links to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the notorious leader of the West-hating death cult.

Detectives last night revealed the contest on May 14 – to be attended by up to 16,000 people at the Globe Arena – is their target.

BBC commentator Graham Norton is soon due to travel to Stockholm – which was last hit by a terror attack in 2010 – to prepare for the event.


He will be joined by British entrants Joe Woolford and Jake Shakeshaft, who hope to win the contest with their song You're Not Alone.

And a BBC insider said the heightened terror threat in the capital is "worrying for everyone about to head out there".

Jesper Ackinger, project manager for Eurovision, said: "We have made our plans from a perspective of a high security level.

The special team formed for the arrangement in the Globe has continuous planned meetings with the police and relevant authorities.

"We do not comment on the security around the events."


A Foreign Office spokesman said there is a "general threat" from terrorism in Sweden and urged Britons to be "vigilant".

He added: "There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals."

And a spokesman for the Swedish security service Sapo said: "Information has come our way that we cannot ignore."
