Sinai terrorists threaten Pepsi

Militants accuse soft-drink company of supporting authorities: 'You know who we are and what is in our power to do'.

The Ansar Bait al-Maqdis terrorist organization, based in the Sinai Peninsula desert, released threatening messages directed at soft-drink giant Pepsi, Al Arabiya reported Saturday, accusing them of providing logistical support in the Egyptian government's fight against terror in the Sinai.



Ansar Bait al-Maqdis (Supporters of Jerusalem) released the threats on their twitter page, accusing Pepsi of allowing Egypt's Ministry of Interior to use company vehicles for the transport of detainees.


"You know who we are and what is in our power to do," read a tweet from the organization. "This will be the last warning. After this, the company can only blame themselves. We won't tolerate cooperation with the police, regardless of who cooperates, what their stance is, and on what level they are cooperating."

Egypt's social media networks were ablaze in March in reaction to a video documenting an alleged police truck bearing the logo of the Coca-Cola Company.


The truck shown in the video was being used for the transport of prisoners, but it remains unclear if the threats from Ansar Bait al-Maqdis have any connection to the video since the warnings targeted a different company.


Coca-Cola responded to the video from social media saying that the truck had no affiliation with the company and that the company would not allow authorities in Egypt to use its commercial symbol on government vehicles.
