London: A terrorist believed to have been involved in a horrific suicide bomb attack in Bulgaria last week, has emerged as one of the biggest security threats to the London Olympics that begin towards the end of this week.
According to The Daily Mail, the man was carrying a US passport with the name of David Jefferson and fled after the attack, which killed six people. He has emerged as a top target for Israeli security agents, who fear that their athletes could be attacked by an Iranian terror group operating in Europe.
The terrorist, who is suspected of helping the suicide bomber, is thought to have another powerful bomb similar to the one, which destroyed the Israeli tourist bus.
The Israeli government, fearing a repeat of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich where 11 of its athletes and coaches were killed, has sent agents from its internal security service, Shin Bet, to increase the protection around its Olympic team.
