Extremist group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis have declared war on Pepsi, accusing the soft drinks giant of allowing the Egyptian security forces to use their trucks to transport prisoners.
Terror nuts have declared jihad on one of Egypt's best loved soft drink brands. Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis extremists are 'fizzed-off' after Pepsi allegedly allowed the Egyptian security forces to transfer prisoners in their trucks. The group, which has previously launched a state of attacks on security and police officials, slammed the firm in a statement which reach: “You know who we are and what we can do. This is the last warning and after this, Pepsi Co. can only blame itself. By God, we will not tolerate working with the police whatever the client, the amount and status.”
The news comes after Egyptian police had disguised a truck, usually used for transporting prisoners, coated rival soft drink brand Coca-Cola's trademark red logo. Coca-Cola Egypt denied the claims.
The USA along with a number of Gulf States have already designated Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis as a terrorist group.
