FBI Concerned About Coordinated Terror Attack in U.S. Similar to Moscow Concert Hall Attack

Federal law enforcement officials are concerned that terrorists could launch a coordinated attack in the U.S. that is similar to the ISIS-K terrorist attack that was carried out in Russia last month.

Reuters reported that FBI Director Christopher Wray was set to relay this warning to the House of Representatives during a hearing on Thursday.

“Looking back over my career in law enforcement, I’d be hard-pressed to think of a time where so many threats to our public safety and national security were so elevated all at once,” Christopher Wray says in prepared remarks. “But that is the case as I sit here today.”

Several ISIS-K terrorists stormed a concert hall in Moscow late last month and opened fire with automatic while simultaneously setting the sold out venue on fire, killing more than 140 people.

Wray will say that an increasing threat in the U.S. “is the potential for a coordinated attack here in the homeland, akin to the ISIS-K attack we saw at the Russia Concert Hall a couple weeks ago.” (Read more from “FBI Concerned About Coordinated Terror Attack in U.S. Similar to Moscow Concert Hall Attack” HERE)
