NEW YORK (NEWS10) – According to a report by Vocativ, an ISIS kill list calls for ISIS loyalists to target thousands of Americans.

A pro-ISIS hacking group called the United Cyber Caliphate distributed the list. The list includes names, addresses, and email addresses belonging to 8,318 people.

The names and addresses belong to people living in the United States, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Brazil, China, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, New Zealand, South Korea, Sweden, Trinidad, and Tobago. Vocativ reports of the 7,848 Americans listed, 1,445 had addresses in California, 643 in Florida, 341 in Washington, 333 in Texas, 331 in Illinois, and 290 in New York.
