on


The FBI and New York Police Department say they are assessing the credibility of information they received of a possible al-Qaida terror attack against the U.S. on the eve of Election Day. Officials say Friday that counterterrorism investigators are reviewing the information that mentioned New York, Texas and Virginia as potential targets. It wasn’t immediately clear how the intelligence came to investigators’ attention. An NYPD spokesman says in a statement the information “lacks specificity.”

In a statement, the FBI said it was working closely with law enforcement agencies and sharing intelligence reports. Governor Greg Abbott, meanwhile, says his office is monitoring the situation. “Texans should go about their daily lives as usual, but remain vigilant over the next several days,” Abbott said. Abbott says Texans should report any suspicious activity to state or local law enforcement.
