U.S. warns of heightened domestic terrorism threat after presidential inauguration
The United States faces a heightened threat of domestic terrorism from people disgruntled with the outcome of the November presidential election, the Department of Homeland Security said on Wednesday.
“Information suggests that some ideologically motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence,” the department said in a national terrorism advisory.
There was no information on a specific credible plot but the heightened threat across the United States was likely to persist for weeks, it said.The DHS advisory said so-called domestic violent extremists were motivated by issues including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results and police use of force.
It also cited “long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration” as drivers of domestic violence attacks.Reporting by Doina Chiacu; Editing by Angus MacSwan Read more: Reuters Top News »
