Mall Of America Named Target In Terrorist Video

Minnesota’s Mall of America has heightened security in the wake of a video threatening a terror attack there, apparently released by a Somali militant group with ties to al-Qaeda.

Asked about the video, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson sounded a tad less than reassuring, saying shoppers there should be “particularly careful,” and this kind of video threat is a “new phase” that we’ve entered in regard to global terrorism.

ABC’s Aaron Katersky joined Your Wake Up Call Monday morning to discuss.
