COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — An English-language Al-Qaida publication that promotes “lone-wolf” terrorist attacks includes the Air Force Academy on a list of possible terrorism targets.

The Gazette (https://bit.ly/1u5fSia) reported Friday that the list in the online magazine al-Malahem also includes casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, Times Square and Britain’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as well as “tourist resorts where Israelis, Britons or Americans stay.”

Academy officials say they’re aware that the school is mentioned in the magazine and remain vigilant and aware of existing and emerging threats.
