A pro- ISIS hacking group have published a list of names - including 39 Brits - as fresh terror targets on a chilling 'kill list'.

The United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) shared the full list of 8,318 people including their addresses and email contact details on a secretive messaging app service.

It urged its supporters to “follow” those listed - and “kill them strongly to take revenge for Muslims".

An image it attached to the posts declared: "All world can't stop Islamic State" - and talked of 'Ghosts' and a 'Caliphate Cyber Army' - together with a picture of a lone, masked and armed soldier wandering a battlefield.

It is one of the longest kill lists any ISIS-affiliated group has distributed to date - but the believed to be the first the group has issued to contain details of non-US citizens.

It is not known if the 39 Brits named are military or government workers - or people in the public eye like royalty or celebrities.

It said most of the names and the accompanying addresses listed "appear to belong to people in the United States, Australia, and Canada".

The numbers of people listed in each country were: USA - 7,848, Canada – 312, Australia – 69, UK – 39.

The rest of the people listed are reported to be from a variety of nations including: Belgium, Brazil, China, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago, South Korea and Sweden.
