(NEWSER) – According to hacking group Anonymous, the Islamic State has made credible threats against events in multiple countries—including the US—set to take place Sunday, the Hill reports. Anonymous issued a statement Saturday in which it identified “confirmed” risks or possible risks at events in the US, Paris, Indonesia, Italy, and Lebanon. “The goal is to make sure the whole world, or at least the people going to these events, know that there have been threats and that there is possibility of an attack to happen,” the International Business Times quotes the statement. “Another goal is to make sure [ISIS] knows that the world knows and cancels the attacks.” The at-risk event identified in the US is the WWE Survivor Series scheduled to take place in Atlanta on Sunday.
