Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said?

Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said? Isis claims Las Vegas shooting: What have they said?

US officials said on Monday that there was no evidence that the shooter who killed at least 50 people in Las Vegas was tied to any worldwide militant group, though one official said security agencies were examining an Islamic State claim of responsibility.

A second post, which experts say is a rare occurrence for an ISIS claim, said that the "attacker of Las Vegas converted several months ago".

The terrorist organization ISIS is urging its members to create English propaganda to frame the October 1 shooting in Las Vegas, which killed 59 people and wounded 527, as the actions of a "soldier" of their so-called Caliphate.

Stephen Paddock's family said he had no political or religious affiliation.

The extremist group's Aamaq news agency used to be a relatively reliable source of information, but in recent years has made increasingly exaggerated or false claims.

As the terror group's caliphate continues to crumble in the Middle East, desperate jihadis have claimed responsibility for attacks they have not carried out.

The quick responsibility claim - discounted by Federal Bureau of Investigation officials - is the latest in a series of dubious or seemingly fake ISIS claims, reflecting the extremists' eagerness to latch onto global attacks it can tout as its own as it fights for survival in its Mideast base.

He urged followers to "intensify one attack after another against the infidels", following a spike in global terror attacks.

However, when Isis claimed the attack on a casino in the Philippines that killed dozens of people, it was later left embarrassed when police later identified the attacker as a Filipino gambling addict who was US$80,000 in debt, saying it was a botched robbery that was not terrorism-related.

The Isis group does not claim credit for every attack but often claims the ones by individuals inspired by its message but with no known links to the group.

The Islamic State's unsubstantiated claim, released on Monday, didn't mention gunman Stephen Paddock by name, and came amid rampant speculation about the attacker's identity and motives.

"More likely, ISIS's supporters will believe what the group says and not what is proven beyond a doubt by the Western media", Clarke added.

An intercepted ISIS communication from October 2 claims credit for the shooting in Las Vegas on October 1.
