Members of the Japanese Red Army, a terrorist organization, have fanned out from the Middle East and already may be in South Korea for the Olympics, security officials report.

At least three operatives of the Red Army, whose members number only about 30 but who include some of the world’s most ruthless terrorists, are believed to have made their way since last year toward Seoul, traveling on Japanese passports stolen in Spain in 1986.

“The Seoul Olympics are one of its targets,” an official of Japan’s National Police Agency recently said, indicating that nations strongly aligned with South Korea, such as the United States and Japan, also could be targeted.

Meanwhile, the North Korea Foreign Ministry released a statement that it did not have the “slightest intention” of disrupting the Games.
