 The FBI and Homeland Security are warning of concerns that anarchist groups may try to use improvised explosive devices at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, the Charlotte Business Journal reports [2].

It’s unclear how real the threat is because the FBI routinely issues similar advisories ahead of major events and plans to heighten security.

The FBI also issued warnings about potential violence at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. next week., Charlotte Business Journal reported

What prompted the advisory isn’t known, but police said they are concerned about an extremist anarchist group called “Anonymous.”
