Personal details, including names, home addresses, phone numbers of 36 Minnesota policeman have been published on ISIS hackers’ “kill list.”
One in four Americans who attempt to join ISIS are from Minnesota, according to congressional report.
Washington Post reports: A group of hackers loyal to the Islamic State terrorist group have reportedly posted a “kill list” with the names and personal details of 36 policemen in Minnesota.
The list, published by the “Caliphate Cyber Army” on the encrypted mobile app Telegram, includes full names, home addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of all the policemen, according to Vocativ. The cops reportedly live in cities across Minnesota, but the majority are located in and around the Twin Cities.
Minnesota has a large population of Somali immigrants, with the Cedar Riverside community in Minneapolis housing the largest Somali community in the country. Since 2007, two dozen men from the Cedar Riverside community have left to join extremist groups.
Last week, the Caliphate Cyber Army posted a threat on its Telegram channel, warning that its next round of attacks would target financial institutions. “It will include banks, money transfer services, stocks and so on. Beware of us, economical war has just started,” the message said, according to Vocativ.
