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 police officers 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 officers.
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.
A congressional report from last November said one in four Americans who has attempted to join the Islamic State group is from Minnesota.
