ISIS to target World Cup players, fans in Russia with bombs

ISIS are reportedly planning on dropping bombs on players and fans at the World Cup in Russia by using drones, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.

Shocking photos and videos posted on encrypted app Telegram appear to detail the plans and explain how the terror group intends to carry the attacks out.

The propaganda is believed to show extremists arming the drones with explosives, in preparation for unleashing them at the football tournament in June.

One of the photos apparently shows a drone carrying anti-tank rockets with the collection also showing extremists returning from Syria and Iraq to work with the drones.

The Telegram app has become a breeding ground for extremists.

A cyber security expert said that the app has been plagued by terrorists plotting atrocities at the World Cup.

The drones that ISIS are planning on using seem to the cheap kind normally used by filmmakers.

The plans suggest that these everyday devices will have deadly bombs attached to them. 

Posts on the app also claim that ISIS could use planes and other specialised devices that carry bombs.   

A pro-ISIS telegram post next to a picture of a drone carrying what appear to be anti-tank rockets, reads: 'These are some of the types of bombs that are being used in the UAVs manufactured by Isis.'

The terrifying report comes after security services admitted the World Cup is a target for ISIS.
