In video, IS appears to warn of attack on Washington

The Islamic State warns in a new video of an attack in Washington and in the cities of any country that participates in air raids against the radical group in Syria and Iraq.

“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,” a man in the video says, according to Reuters, which notes that the authenticity of the video has yet to be verified.

If authentic, it would be IS’s first reaction to a massive French bombing run against it in the wake of Friday’s terror attacks in Paris.
