US alert over ‘credible 9/11 terror threat’  09/09/2011

US media said three individualswere reported to have enteredthe country in August and were allegedly seeking to carryout an attack using an explosives-laden vehicle.
Peter King, a congressman for New York and head of the House Committee on Homeland Security, would not confirm any details after legislators were briefed about the situation.
But he told CNN “there were very, very specific facts that were made known in this threat.”
“I can tell you that the administration, all levels of lawenforcement, federal, state and local where it’s appropriate, are checking out every possible lead, running this to ground, and we’ve come a long way since September 11.”
The announcement came after US defence officials on Wednesday raised the alert level at bases across the United States as “a prudent and precautionary measure”.
Sunday’s biggest event will be the reading of victims’ names at Ground Zero, which will be attended by victims’ family members, as well as Obama, George Bush, his presidential predecessor, and Bloomberg.
Security is the main concern among organisers of the ceremonies remembering those who died and large crowds are expected as the country reflects on a decade ofwar abroad and fear of further attacks at home.
