Las Vegas shooting responsibility claimed

Las Vegas: The Islamic State group on Monday claimed responsibility for the mass shooting at Las Vegas music concert in which at least 58 people were killed and over 500 injured, a media report said.

Citing an ISIS propaganda agency, the AFP reported that the terror outfit has claimed responsibility for Sunday night's horrific attack.

"The executor of the Las Vegas attack is a soldier of the Islamic State," the news agency quoted  ISIS propaganda outlet Amaq as saying.  

He carried out the attack in "response" to calls to target countries engaged in military action against jihadists, Amaq said but gave no proof to back its claim.
