Yahoo.ca: There are 151 Canadians about to get an uncomfortable phone call from police.
It may go something like this: “It’s probably nothing, but … your name appears to be on an ISIS kill list.”
Imagine getting that call. Imagine being the constable assigned to make it.
CBC has obtained a copy of the list, which contains the names, and email and physical addresses of some 8,300 people around the globe. It’s hard to tell what unites them.
The Canadian names are mostly of women, from predominantly small centres in Canada, although there are some from large cities, too.
Names not hand-picked
There are lots of theories as to how the names got on the list. What seems clear is they weren’t hand-picked. These don’t appear to be people targeted for who they are or what they have said or done. It doesn’t even seem like the names were entered manually. Some appear multiple times. more
