NYPD: City Remains on High Alert After 9/11 Events

New York City police say security measures put in place for the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks have been scaled back.

But they caution that the city remains on high alert because of an unconfirmed tip that Al Qaeda may be planning a bombing. They say New Yorkers will still see extra patrols in the subways and elsewhere.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly spoke about security Tuesday at a gathering of community leaders in advance of the Jewish holidays beginning with Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 28. He says there are no specific threats linked to the holidays, but police still will step up security in Jewish neighborhoods and at synagogues as a precaution.

Authorities announced last week they were investigating the potential Al Qaeda threat. Kelly says it's still unconfirmed.
