Brazilian authorities have arrested at least 10 people believed to be plotting terrorist attacks at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
"This is a first for Brazil. This would be the first time they're arresting a group on suspicion of plotting terror acts," CNN's Shasta Darlington reports.
Authorities say the suspects, all Brazilian nationals, pledged allegiance to ISIS online but were not part of a larger, organized cell in the area.
