Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen urges followers to strike U.S. targets, including restaurants in Washington, in a new edition of an English-language publication that the group posts online.
U.S. counterterrorism officials said they were taking the threat seriously. "When specific locations are mentioned as possible targets, that's always a concern," said a U.S. counterterrorism official. "This terrorist publication is filled with the kind of hatred you see in other extremist propaganda."
