The Argentine Ministry of Security has confirmed that three men are in custody after attempting to carry out a terrorist attack on the Jewish Pan American Maccabi Games in Beunos Aires.
The Argentine Federal Police, in coordination with the Anti-Terrorist Investigation Unit of the Superintendence of Federal Investigations, managed to find the whereabouts of the three people in the midst of a joint investigation between the National Directorate of Criminal Intelligence (DINIC) and the Airport Security Police (PSA).
The men were located after a parcel was sent to them from Yemen. One of the Syrian men entered from Venezuela with a passport from that country and a Lebanese man entered from Colombia with an appropriate passport from that country. The diplomatic status of the third man was not disclosed.
