Repost: ISIS Threatens to Bomb Miss Universe 2017, DOT Reacts

Philippines tourism officials on Tuesday said a threat by an Islamic State-related group to bomb the Miss Universe beauty contest was "serious", but insisted the country would be ready to hold the pageant next year.

A pro-ISIS social media channel tracked by the terror-monitoring SITE Intelligence Group showed a video on how to "create a bomb for Miss Universe," referring to the beauty pageant to be held in Manila in January 2017.

The video, posted on Monday, appeared to show how to make an explosive belt for suicide operations.

"We consider this as serious," said the Department of Tourism, which last month announced it won the contest to host the 2017 pageant.

It cited the country's successful hosting of Pope Francis last year, as well as world leaders for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, as proof that it was ready for the expected influx of visitors for Miss Universe.

The threat would be referred to an intelligence group assigned to the pageant, national police spokesman Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos told AFP.

"That's going to be looked at," he said, without giving details.

Filipino Muslim militants operating in the south of the country have in recent years pledged allegiance to the IS, though security officials and analysts said they were more focused on raising ransom from kidnappings than propagating an ideology. — Agence France-Presse

  4. If I know DOT din ng issue na yan para ma pag usapan ang pageant at ma pick ng international media. Beauty pageants are irelevant in progressive countries.
    The organization last year had to resort to gimik aka Steve Harvey announcing the wrong winner para mapagusapan. The government should focus its attention on sports not pageants.

    1. Agree dapat sports. Akala ko ba ngayon na nakaupo si Pacman eh makikita man lang na may support ang government sa mga athletes natin. Ang konti man lang ng representatives ng Pinas for the Rio Olympics.

      Common sense which unfortunately you do not possess. In this age you still believe in beauty pageants.

  5. Hate hate ISIS so much. They're losing ground in the Middle East so they're trying to reach out to the international extremists to do their dirty work. I'm so disgusted! Be safe, Philippines! Be vigilant and may God bless us 😔

  6. Ito mismo ang dahilan kung bakit sana hindi nila pinilit ipush na dito gawin yan. Sa dami kasi ng terroriat attacks ngayon, hindi malayong mangyari to. Sana binigay na nila sa ibang bansa yan. Kahit pa sabihing sponsored to ng private sectors, gagamit pa rin to ng ka-pulisan para sa safety ng mga kalahok.

    1. Sus. Kung bobombahin talaga kesehodang sa ibang bansa o dito yan. Para mo na din sinabi na dapat walang airport para hindi mabomba. Walang may alam kung san talaga ang totoong target ng mga yan. Malay mo malls.

      Delete
    2. Highly llausible naman na bombahin yan. Remember, Miss Universe is an internationa know event. Eh bakit nila bobombahin ang malls when they can do something bigger and can reach more audience. Philippines doesn't need Miss Universe pageant.

    1. 9:47 pero pag nag-succeed yung anti-illegal drug campaign nina Duterte at Bato, IKAW AT ANG PAMILYA mo makikinabang din! Kelan pa dapat kumilos ang gobyerno, kung huli na ang lahat? Dapat magpasalamat ka dahil ang gobyerno ngayon nagta-trabaho, hindi tamad! Marami na ngang nagawa magdadalawang buwan pa lang sa pwesto! Palibhasa sanay ka sa gobyernong puro kuda lang pero kulang naman sa gawa!

    2. Agree. Astig naman ang presidente at PNP chief. Masyadong maangas at magagaling kaya kayang-kaya nila mga ISIS on their own. Buti yan ng magkalabasan na ng tapang. Patayan kung patayan. Matira matibay.

Dapat talaga nag focus na Lang Ang bansa sa agriculture and fishery industry because it simply lacks the infrastructure for highly technical areas!
