  • Stephen Paddock, 64, killed at least 59 people and injured 527 more on Sunday
  • ISIS, in what seems to be a desperate publicity stunt, claims he was their ‘soldier’
  • New video criticises President Donald Trump for ignoring their ‘serious’ warning
  • But FBI officials rubbished the claims saying gumnan had no terror links at all 

Islamic State has released a new video bragging that the Las Vegas massacre was revenge for US attacks against their caliphate.

In what appears to be a desperate publicity stunt, the terror group claimed the horrific acts of Stephen Paddock, 64, were down to them, saying they radicalised him months before he shot 59 people dead and injured 527 more on Sunday night.

FBI officials rubbished the claims, saying he had no affiliation to any terrorist organisations, but the Islamic extremists took to their propaganda news agencies to spread the word.

Paddock (seen here in an undated photo) made a fortune in real estate, his brother said. He seemed an unremarkable man, aside from a heavy gambling habit – and didn’t even have a traffic violation on his Nevada criminal record

 

Photos have emerged of two of the 23 firearms found in Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room. The weapon on the left has a bump stock added to make it fully automatic, a scope for accuracy and an oversize magazine to hold more ammunition. The weapon on the right has markings indicating it was made by Daniel Defense, a bipod for stability, and a telescopic lens

 

Stephen Paddock, 64, turned his luxury Las Vegas hotel suite into a sniper's nest on Sunday by smashing open two windows on the hotel's corner and setting up two guns on tripods before opening fire on the Route 91 Harvest music festival below

The latest to emerge is on the pro-ISIS Al-Battar Media Foundation who released a two-minute video in English titled Rightful Revenge, unearthed by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). 

The video presents excerpts from an eye- witness’s testimony about the attack, from statements by the Las Vegas Sheriff, and from an old recording by British ISIS executioner Mohamed Emawzi, who became known as Jihadi John.

In his speech, he says that attacks on Muslims would result in bloodshed in the aggressors’ home countries.
