As the world recovers from the terrorist attacks that took place in Paris last week, ISIS is already posing new threats. The terror group released a new video Monday that indicates they are looking to plot an attack on Washington D.C. The video shows coverage of the chaos in Paris and cuts to a man, recognized as Al Ghareeb the Algerian, telling countries that have come together against Syria to watch their backs. “We say to the states that take part in the crusader campaign that, by God, you will have a day, God willing, like France’s and by God, as we struck France in the center of its abode in Paris, then we swear that we will strike America at its center in Washington,” said Al Ghareeb. Police officials have beefed up security in Washington D.C., but said there are no signs of any specific danger. “The Metropolitan Police Department is working collaboratively with local and federal law enforcement and homeland security agencies to ensure the security of Washington, D.C.,” said a statement released by Capitol Police. The video also warned that Europe should expect more attacks. Read more.
Two Men Charged in Paris Attacks
Two men have been charged in relation to the Paris attacks. Hamza Attou and Mohammed Amri were the getaway drivers for attack accomplice Salah Abdeslam. They reportedly picked up Abdeslam from Paris and drove him back to Belgium on Saturday. The two were apprehended after video footage and a witness testimony led officials to a black Belgian rental car that was stopped on Saturday at the border check. Law enforcement officials are still trying to find Abdeslam, whose brother died while carrying out the attacks. Amri and Attou are claiming they had no knowledge that Abdeslam was associated with the attacks and were simply asked to give him a lift to Belgium. Read more.
