ISIS graffiti is showing up in Washington, D.C.

A smattering of ISIS-related graffiti is surfacing in America's capital, New York's Marin Cogan reports.

Here's a sample:

Will McCants, director of the Brookings Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World, tells New York it's probably "just someone goofing off," remarking, "Why write Allah Akbar in Arabic and then switch to the Latin alphabet for ISIS?"

The FBI says its aware of the graffiti and urges "anyone who sees suspicious activity or if anyone has any information about this vandalism to report it to the local authorities or to the FBI."
