Brit tabloid Canary Island 'terror warning' is hoax, say police
18 July 2018 @ 21:26

POLICE in the Canary Islands have debunked claims in a British tabloid that a terrorist attack is imminent in the region and has called for the public to 'ignore hoaxes' – although they recognise this is difficult when they are printed in a mainstream newspaper.

The Daily Star published a report titled, “REVEALED: White Widow recruiting suicide bombers to attack Spanish beaches this summer.”

It spoke of a white 'British Jihadi' called Samantha Lewthwaite who has 'enrolled dozens of women – including white converts to Islam like herself – to strike at hotspots across Europe'.

“The Spanish Costas, Greece, Turkey, the Canary Islands and Cyprus have all been identified as potential targets – along with resorts in the UK,” the report claims, referring to 'shocking details' from 'encrypted emails, phone calls and via foreign Intelligence services'.
