ISIS threatens to bomb Miss Universe event in Philippines
A beauty contest in the Philippines has been targeted by evil jihadis in a veiled online threat.
The Miss Universe event, which is set to be staged in the Philippines next year, was mentioned on an online tutorial that explained how to make a suicide bomb.
In one of the comments underneath the video, one sick poster suggested "Create bomb for miss universe."
According to the Sun , the exact location of the competition has yet to be decided, but current Miss World champion Pia Wurtzbach, a Filipino-German actress, is set to attend.
This year's winner will be crowned at the end of January 2017.
The Islamic State (ISIS) threat is thought to be growing in South East Asia with the group gaining support in the region.
The Philippines is a primarily Catholic country with Islam the second largest religion.
However, ISIS has been losing ground in its middle east stronghold over recent months.
Earlier on Monday it was reported that elite SAS soldiers had been pictured fighting ISIS terror thugs in Syria.
Photographs - believed to be the first to show the British highly-trained special forces in Syria - show around a dozen of the soldiers on four 4x4s bristling with weapons.
The BBC said that the photos were taken immediately after an ISIS attack had killed nine Syrian rebels at Al Tanaf base.
A New Syrian Army spokesman refused to comment on the pictures of the special forces, but said: "We are receiving special forces training from our British and American partners. We're also getting weapons and equipment from the Pentagon as well as complete air support."
In May it was reported that British special forces are leading a secret Coalition mission to snatch Islamic State commanders before a major assault on Mosul in Iraq.
Prisoners taken by the SAS are being handed over to Kurdish and Iraqi security officials for interrogation.
It is part of a plan to unnerve the enemy before an assault on the stricken city in the north.
