Baba Vanga, the blind Nostradamus of the Balkans, made some troubling predictions about World War Three that have sparked the imagination of conspiracy enthusiasts. 

The prophetess, who died aged 85 in 1996, is alleged to have made hundreds of predictions about the future of humanity, with an 85 per cent accuracy rate, from her home in Petrich, Bulgaria.

Baba prophesied a 2016 invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists, a conflict she predicted would begin with the Arab Spring in 2010.

She also forewarned of a showdown in Syria where “Muslims would use chemical warfare against Europeans”.

The prediction is eerily similar to the Sarin gas attack thought to have been conducted on the orders of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

Baba also appeared to predict that the 45th President of the United States - who we now know to be Donald Trump - would be faced with a crisis which would "bring the country down".

Her chilling prediction states: “Everyone will put their hopes in him to end it, but the opposite will happen; he will bring the country down and conflicts between north and south states will escalate.”
