Transcript for ISIS in spotlight after Sri Lanka bombings
Thank you. ISIS claimed responsibility for those raising questions about how strong the group is after losing territory in the Middle East. ABC's chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz has more from Washington. Martha, good morning. How are you U.S. Officials responding? Reporter: The FBI and department of homeland security issuing an intelligence bulletin saying that ISIS will almost certainly use these Sri Lankan bombings to further its rhetoric for like-minded attacks and counterintelligence officials believe they were not just inspired by ISIS but could have been directed and coordinated by veterans of ISIS battles in Iraq and Syria who returned to Sri Lanka after the defeat of ISIS. They were clearly well financed. The bombmaking sophisticated and the coordination really flawless. This may be a look at ISIS 2.0 and heard president trump say it was defeated in Iraq and Syria but this is a group whose radical ideology is still spreading across the globe and clearly still posing a powerful and deadly threat. It lives online. Thanks very much.
