Somali Terror Group Calls for Attack on Mall of America
The al Qaeda-linked Somali terror group al-Shabaab has released a video that calls for an attack on the Mall of America, near Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Al-Shabaab is the same group that claimed responsibility for the deadly 2013 terror attack on Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that left more than 60 people dead.
Anna Kooiman reported on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that the new video depicts an image of the mega-mall with its GPS coordinates as a man tells followers to use the Westgate massacre as inspiration.
The Mall of America has taken the threat very seriously, increasing security and releasing a statement that says, "Mall of America is aware of a video that was recently released which included a mention and images of the Mall. We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies."
Other terror targets mentioned in the video include popular malls in the United Kingdom and Canada.
