HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s governor has ordered state police to increase their presence along rail lines and at Bradley International Airport.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said he issued the order Thursday in light of events overseas and out of abundance of caution. He said there is no credible threat against Connecticut and the measures are precautionary.
Iraq’s prime minister said Thursday that captive Islamic State militants told his intelligence agents of an alleged plot to attack subways in the United States and Paris.
Malloy’s order affects security along Metro-North and Amtrak train lines.
