WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI is warning local police, electrical companies and transportation agencies that it has received a steady stream of threats that mention New York and Washington in relation to the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Last week, the FBI posted a bulletin on its Web site and sent a message over a private law enforcement bulletin system advising a state of alert on Sept. 11.
Both bulletins said there is no specific or credible information indicating that any of the commemorative events scheduled Wednesday will be targeted by terrorists. But, because of the general threats, the FBI advised a heightened state of awareness.
The police bulletin was sent Wednesday, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
