Brazil has to live with the "pervasive reality" of widespread terror threats, but serious preparations to counter attacks at the Olympics have been taken, Jungmann said at the Roda Viva talk show broadcast by the local TV Cultura on Monday.

He added that more than 80,000 servicemen would be deployed to ensure the safety and security of the Olympics.

Rio de Janeiro will host the Summer Olympic Games on August 5-21, 2016, and will become the first South American country to host the competition.
