Argentine President Receives another Threat from Islamic State

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine police and prosecutors are investigating a threatening email sent to Argentine President Cristina Fernandez allegedly from jihadist group Islamic State, Clarin reported Sunday.

The message, received on April 26, also mentions Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Argentine Police Chief Roman Di Santo, according to official sources cited by the daily.

“Satan KFK (Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner), Roman Di Santo, and now Bachelet in place of Alberto Nisman, are our targets in countries that clash with our aims. Di Santo has been in danger on two occasions, though he has yet to pay the highest price,” says the main paragraph of the email.

During an official visit to the Vatican in September last year, Fernandez revealed she had received threatening messages from the Islamic State, allegedly because of her friendship with Pope Francis and Argentina’s recognition of both Israel and Palestine.

Subsequent local media reports said intelligence agencies were investigating a Tunisian businessman for his contacts with the Islamic State.

However, Fernandez denied the veracity of these reports and asked media to refrain from playing up the issue of threats against her.
