(Las Vegas, NV) AP — Metro Police have confirmed al-Qaeda leaders are encouraging lone jihadists to target Las Vegas for terror attacks.

A publication called “Palestine” lists Vegas in a section on building and using car bombs, and points out specific targets such as casinos and nightclubs. Lieutenant Nichole Splinter with Southern Nevada’s Counter-Terrorism Unit says there’s no evidence of a specific plan, but the team will, quote, “remain vigilant”. She urges people to report suspicious activity.
