Brazilian police say they have arrested the last suspect who was sought in the case of a group that pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group on social media and shared ideas about attacking the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The federal police said in a statement late on Sunday that the man was caught in the city of Comodoro, in the central west region of Brazil . Police said he was taken to a federal prison but revealed no further details, citing security reasons. The plot was announced by authorities on Thursday when 10 Brazilians were arrested in different states of Brazil. Officials say the suspects were Isis sympathizers but they had not traveled to the group's stronghold in Syria or Iraq or received any training.
