Holidaymakers left terrified after hotel worker carrying RIFLE sparks fears of ISIS attack at Fuerteventura resort
Tourists at a Canary Islands resort were left terrified after a hotel worker was spotted walking around carrying a RIFLE – sparking fears of an ISIS attack1 . The member of staff sparked panic at the Oasis Village complex in Fuerteventura as she pointed the weapon at holidaymakers as they soaked up the sun. The woman was caught on camera by a shocked onlooker as she strolled around holding the gun.
Some tourists did not appear to react to the scene, however others were clearly alarmed.

One eyewitness, named only as Marilyn, told MailOnline how one woman grabbed her bag and ran to the hotel reception. She claims some holidaymakers ducked behind a wall while others sought shelter in the bar area, the website reported.

The woman was later revealed to be a member of the hotel’s Animation team, who had been seeking tourists to join her in a rifle-shooting activity. But her actions were criticised after it emerged earlier this year that ISIS vowed further attacks by jihadis posing as ice cream and T-shirt sellers.
