Al-Qaeda calls for terror attack on crowded Washington restaurant at lunch hour

“Al-Qaeda has called on American jihadis to carry out a terror attack on a crowded restaurant in Washington to massacre US government workers.

The terror threat was unearthed from the second edition of Al-Qaeda’s English-language magazine ‘Inspire’.

‘A random hit at a crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C., at lunch hour might end up knocking out a few government employees,’ the New York Daily News quoted Yahya Ibrahim, as having written in the 74-page propaganda magazine.

‘Targeting such employees is paramount and the location would also give the operation additional media attention,’ he added.”
