FBI Investigates ISIS Video That Warns of Potential Terrorism Attack in NYC

Responding to threats of a terrorist attack by ISIS in New York City, the FBI and New York police said there are no specific threats, Reuters reports. 

ISIS suggested in a video that New York City is a potential target for attacks similar to the ones in Paris.

“While some of the video footage is not new, the video reaffirms the message that New York City remains a top terrorist target,” Stephen Davis, a deputy NYPD commissioner, said in a statement. “While there is no current or specific threat to the city at this time, we will remain at a heightened state of vigilance.”

The FBI said it is investigating the threats.

ISIS took credit for the Paris attacks in the video, which shows New York City and a suicide bomber holding a trigger.

“Footage of New York shown in the ISIS video was taken from a video released by the group in April of this year. So while NYC is and has been a target for ISIS, today’s video does not warrant any kind of panic,” SITE director Rita Katz said in an email to Reuters.
