ISIS calls on fanatics to 'burn America, London

ISIS terrorist
ISIS has urged fanatics to 'burn America', attack London and target Russian political and religious leaders in new propaganda, the Daily Mail said.

One chilling poster warning of attacks in London shows a militant in front of an image of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

A second calls on extremists to 'break the cross' and shows Russian President Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church in crosshairs.

The same poster encourages supporters to 'burn America', according to the respected SITE Intelligence group which monitors terror activity.

In the past, ISIS has threatened attacks in Russia over the Kremlin's backing of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

The propaganda material, released by pro-ISIS groups, comes days after the terror group claimed responsibility for an attack on an Orthodox church in Russia.

Khalil Khalilov screamed 'Allahu akbar' as he opened fire with a hunting rifle killing five women before he was shot dead by police in Kizlyar, a town in the mainly Muslim region of Dagestan.

It is not the first time ISIS has used an image of Big Ben in threats to attack London.
