The Sun warns: 'Fanatics' plotting Call of Duty terrorist attacks

Paper's cover "exclusive" exposes Xbox Live "conspirators"

Terrorists are using Call of Duty to plot terrorist attacks, today's rather barmy Sun cover story has sensationally claimed.


The scare-mongering article, from the paper which famously sported the headline DEATH BY XBOX on its cover last year, claims "conspirators" are using the Activision shooter, along with Halo and Medal of Honor, to discuss their dodgy plans over Xbox Live and PSN.

"Islamic extremists know cops monitor phone calls, emails and online messages. So they are turning to PlayStation and Xbox games to keep their deadly plans secret," it claims.

Even more worrying if you're permanently terrified of terrorist attacks, The Sun claims would-be jihadists are using CoD to train for their attacks (perhaps related to running around a target range as quickly as possible).

"There has even been evidence would-be jihadists treat war games as training tools, a bit like a pilot might use a flight simulator."

More insight on the Call of Duty threat can be found over on The Sun site. Keep an eye open during your Black Ops session this evening... they're out there.
