Vigilance required at T.O.malls: terror experts

Security experts say a terrorist threat against a Canadian mall should be a wake-up call for Toronto shopping centre operators.

David Hyde, a Toronto-based security expert with David Hyde and Associates, said Sunday that a threat from terrorist group al Shabaab should not be ignored.

The Somalian Islamic-extremist group urged supporters to attack malls in North America, including the West Edmonton Mall, in a video released this weekend.
