Las Vegas Ranks Ninth on List of Most Likely Terrorism Targets

A new study ranks Las Vegas ninth among American cities most likely to suffer a major terrorist strike.

The Rand Corporation report says the high-profile Las Vegas Strip put the city on the list.

An attack on the Strip would have the potential for massive financial and property losses, it found.

The report was commissioned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The study was intended to help the federal government develop a better way of allocating terrorism-related funding to urban areas.

New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco,
among other cities face a greater risk than Las Vegas.
