IS launches app to spread terror agenda

Washington: Dec 12; Adding teeth to its growing internet and social media presence, the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group has reportedly launched an app that features news and videos showing executions and battlefield victories and propagates its agenda, the media reported on Saturday.

Discovered by the hacking collective Ghost security group, the app called "Amaq News" is designed to "streamline access" to the terrorist group's "propaganda".

According to a Fortune report, the Android-based app is essentially a news portal run by the Amaq News Agency -- a group believed to be tied to IS.
