ISIS Claims Responsibility for America’s Worst Mass Shooting Attack

According to a Reuters report, the Islamic State has reportedly claimed responsibility for the shooting in Las Vegas where at least 50 people were killed and over 400 wounded.

The terror network claimed the attacker had converted to Islam a few months prior to the incident.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency, Amaq, said; referencing the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added.
