Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said?

Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said?

Three years after it declared its so-called Islamic caliphate across huge swaths of Syria and Iraq, ISIS has lost most of the territory and is on the run in its few remaining bastions.

ISIS claimed the attack a day later, releasing the claim on its self-styled news agency Amaq, on the encrypted messaging app Telegram.

Islamic State has twice said that the Las Vegas shooter, a 64-year-old retired accountant, was one of its "soldiers" via its propaganda news agency Amaq, without providing evidence.

At least 59 people were killed and 530 were injured in the attack.

She is someone who can fill in a lot of the blanks and that's why investigators will want to get her in a interview room quickly. Police responded to the incident and found Paddock dead in his hotel room from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot.

Despite the terrorist group's past prudence, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials say there is no connection between shooter Stephen Paddock and an global terrorist group, or any evidence that indicates he was inspired by ISIS.

The terrorist group published at least one English video on October 3 about the Las Vegas attack.

Paddock reportedly killed himself as police moved in on the 32nd-floor hotel room he was using to shoot down on the crowd. It turned out to be a botched robbery by a heavily indebted Filipino gambling addict.

Another Oct. 2 communication claims that Paddock was acting under the requests of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for the objective of "targeting the coalition governments". The group also claimed a knife attack on Sunday that killed two women in Marseille, France, but French authorities say they have found no link between the attacker and ISIS. He also urged followers to step up attacks and "burn" their enemies everywhere. He said of renewed calls for greater gun control that "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".

To give you some perspective, the breast cancer death rate increased 0.4 percent between 1975 and 1989, so this is a huge jump. But, there has been a recent breakthrough in genetic testing for those at risk of developing breast cancer .

The shooter, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to Isis and it claimed the attack.

The statement, in Arabic, read, "Attacker of the #Las_Vegas shooting is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to targeting coalition countries".

For one, such a claim guarantees relevance for ISIS by keeping it in the news, terrorism expert Bruce Hoffman told Business Insider.

"More likely, ISIS's supporters will believe what the group says and not what is proven beyond a doubt by the Western media", Clarke added.
