Bosnian Islamic extremist calls for killing Christians, threatens US

Bosnian Islamic extremist Jasmin Keserovic, who has been fighting for Islamic State for years, has released a video message to Muslims in which he calls for mass murders of Christians and which contains footage of San Francisco and Las Vegas as potential targets.

The Bosnian portal SAFF, which is close to extremists, said on Tuesday that in the video the 22-year-old Keserovic, of Zavidovici in northern Bosnia and Herzegovina, glorified Omar Mateen, the terrorist who killed 49 people in Orlando earlier this month.

"Rise Muslims! Kill Christians and their servants! In their cities and states. Plant explosives under their cars, in their homes, in their offices. Kill them with sniper rifles and silencers. Kill them as the opportunity arises... even by knife," Keserovic says in the video, which shows Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Las Vegas Strip.

Keserovic made threats last year as well. In the new video, he says Muslims should kill soldiers and civilians out of revenge and in support of Islamic State. "Don't distinguish between soldiers and civilians, just as their planes don't distinguish between Islamic State soldiers and civilians. Firmly rely on Allah. And help your brothers. And don't doubt the correctness of your acts. When punishing, punish as they punished you."
