The FBI is investigating a possible attack at the Super Bowl after a series of fiber optic cables were deliberately severed in the San Francisco Bay Area, according to an internal memo.
The unsolved attacks on the cables raises the possibility that someone is testing network stability ‘in conjunction with a more complex plot,’ according to the missive shared by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
However, the memo – obtained by NBC Washington – says there is nothing to suggest that there is a specific or credible threat against Super Bowl 50, which is to be held at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on February 7.
But in the wake of terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, last year, authorities remain vigilant about the threat of an attack at a crowded event.
According to NBC, more than 10 cables were deliberately cut between July 2014 and June last year – and a spokesman from the FBI’s San Francisco office confirmed there have been at least 15 targeted in the area since 2014.
