VIDEO: Somali Terror Group Threatens America's Largest Mall
A new video from Somalia-based Islamist terror group Al Shabaab purportedly shows the terror group calling for an attack on the largest shopping complex in the United States, the Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.
According to Fox News, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
The narrator, his face wrapped in a black-and-white kaffiyeh-type scarf and wearing a camouflage jacket, spoke with a British accent and appeared to be of Somali origin. He accused Kenyan troops in Somalia of committing abuses against Somali Muslims.
He ended the video by calling on Muslim men to attack other shopping malls in Western countries.
An image of the Mall of America is shown in the video, alongside its GPS coordinates. The mall says it is ramping up its security in response.
U.S. authorities said there was "no credible" evidence suggesting a U.S. mall attack was in the works.
