A mystic whose followers say predicted 9/11, the rise of Isis, the Chernobyl disaster and the 2004 tsunami has some frightening revelations for 2016.
Baba Vanga, a blind Bulgarian who claimed she could see the future, built up a worldwide following before her death in 1996.
It is claimed she foresaw 9/11, claiming: ‘The American brethren will fall after being attacked by steel birds’.
Her supporters also reckon she predicted ‘a great Muslim war’ – which many believe meant she knew Isis was coming.
Before she died, she predicted ‘a 2016 invasion by Muslim extremists’, and said by the end of the year Europe would ‘cease to exist’.
Vanga apparently said chemical weapons would be used by extremists against Europeans.
She also apparently foresaw a ‘big wave’ that would hit a big coast ‘covering people and towns’ – interpreted as a reference to the 2004 Tsunami.
Who is Baba Vanga?
Vanga lost her sight as a child following a storm.
She claimed she could see into the future, stating invisible creatures helped her.
It has been claimed that Vanga, born in 1911, predicted the break-up of the Soviet Union, the Chernobyl disaster, the date of Stalin’s death, the sinking of a Russian submarine, 9/11 and a winner in the world chess tournament.
But people close to her claim too many myths have circulated about her, and she did not make all the predictions she is credited with.
Her record is patchy, to say the least. She apparently predicted the 1994 World Cup final would be played between two teams beginning with B. In fact, Brazil and Italy met in the final.
She is also credited with predicting World War 3 would start in November 2010 and end in October 2014 – another prophesy in dispute, as others say she claimed there would never be a third world war.
