Brazil denies any threat of terrorism


Brazil continues to deny that terrorism is a threat to the country or a concern to Brazilian authorities. Though they have made several arrests on potential terrorism-financiers, these suspects have been brought in on lesser, unrelated charges. Brazilian law enforcement continues to take actions to counter this threat, though they deny that it is a worry. According to this Wikileaks article, U.S. officials believe this denial is an attempt to protect Brazil's international image and the country's Muslim and Arab communities.
