A Georgia woman has been charged with aiding ISIS by creating a "kill list" online that included the names of both State Department employees and American soldiers, ABC News reported on Monday.

Kim Anh Vo, now 20 years old, joined in 2016 ISIS’s United Cyber Caliphate, which was dedicated to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans, according to the indictment unsealed last week by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

Vo, who was known as "[email protected]," "Zozo" or "Miss.Bones" online, is accused of working with the UCC to recruit a minor in Norway and others to "create online content in support of ISIS," according to the indictment.

The Justice Department said that in April 2016, the UCC posted a kill list of more than 3,600 people in the New York City area that said "List of the most important citizens of #NewYork and #Brooklyn and some other cities ... We Want Them #Dead."

The following April the group created another kill list, this one including more than 8,000 individuals.

Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen talked about the Vo case in a speech Monday, saying ISIS is urging followers to "stay in your homeland and kill - using any means possible."

Vo was arrested last week, according to NPR.

On three occasions between July 2017 and August 2018, Vo made contact with the FBI and spoke with agents in voluntary, recorded interviews, although why she did this is unclear.
