Federal police in Brazil have ordered the detention of 12 people who allegedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group via social media.

Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes told journalists in Brasilia on Thursday that 10 men were arrested and police were searching for two more.

Moraes says police acted because the group were discussing a potential attack during the Olympics, which begin Aug. 5.
