Get Breaking News First
SEATTLE (AP) — An FBI spokeswoman in Seattle says there’s no specific target or credible information about an imminent attack.
Spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich says the agency and the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin Thursday to raise awareness about the possibility of homegrown extremist retaliation in response to the killings of civilians in Afghanistan.
A soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord has been accused of the shootings.
Dietrich says the FBI has previously seen extremists plot attacks in retaliation for the actions of soldiers. They include a plot last year to attack a military recruit processing station in Seattle.
