Threat of terrorism directed towards the Cricket World Cup

Nassau County police are set to host a press conference this morning regarding security measures for the upcoming Cricket World Cup. The potential threat targets the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, specifically mentioning the date of June 9, when the India-Pakistan match is scheduled to take place. However, News 12 has not been able to independently confirm the threat.

The threat was reportedly posted on Matrix.org, a website used by supporters of ISIS, as reported by the UK’s Daily Express. This news has caused concern among some spectators who were planning to attend the matches. Ramon Paez from Levittown expressed his hesitation, stating, “I intend to come here and watch some of these matches. And now I’m a little hesitant to come here and expose myself and my family to threats of terror.”

Both the Nassau County police and the Nassau County executive have not yet made any official statements regarding the reported threat. The situation is still developing, and authorities are expected to address any potential security concerns at the press conference later today. It is unclear what specific measures will be taken to ensure the safety of spectators and players during the tournament.
