New Yorkers Warned Of Threat to Subways

New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg warned residents Thursday night of “a specific threat” of a terrorist attack on the city’s transit system in coming days, but Washington authorities played down the threat as “non-credible.” Bloomberg (R) said he stepped up security for the transit system and made the announcement because “we have an obligation to share information with the public, as long as it doesn’t jeopardize their safety, and they can make their own decisions.” The mayor assured residents that everything was being done to provide security, and he vowed to ride the subway to work as usual Friday. He said the threat “was more specific to target” and “more specific to timing” than previous threats, came from multiple sources, and was the most detailed ever received against the 4.7 million-rider-a-day system.Full Story
