Al Qaeda linked terrorist group Al-Shabaab is calling for attacks on malls in countries across the world including the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

The terrorist group released a propaganda video on Saturday.

The video talks about the group’s September 2013 attack on the Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya. That attack left more than 60 people dead.

In the 77-minute video, the terrorists call for similar attacks on Western malls.

Malls mentioned in the video include the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. and West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada.

Both malls have increased security in response to the threats.

The video also mentions Westfield malls, specifically those in Stratford, England and London.

    This Threat has been long coming. This would Hurt the Commerce in or country. I have mentioned before the Malls are a Soft Target. Be Careful Folks and Stay Alert. Report Everything! Good Help us All… Of Course when they say what they will Target, Look for other Targets too. Stay Vigilant.
