NYPD on Heightened Terrorism Alert for Christmas

PIX11 News reports that New York City police have been placed on “heightened alert” for the holiday season, and one of the reasons for concern is a possible terrorist threat that could target New York or several other major American cities.

The report originally cited unnamed sources to say the police were responding to a “credible threat,” but PIX11 later revised their report after NYPD officials denied such a specific terrorist threat had been made.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also said there was “no new or credible threat against the city, but urged residents and visitors alike to be vigilant and report suspicious activity,” according to PIX11.
