NEW YORK (AP) — Police have stepped up security in Times Square but insist that there’s no information pointing to any terror plot against New York City.

NYPD officials told reporters on Wednesday that New Yorkers would see more patrols and other signs of heightened security in Times Square, the subways and other spots during the upcoming Jewish holidays and United Nations General Assembly.

Authorities have warned in recent days that the mounting hostilities between the United States and militants from the Islamic State group have increased the potential for terror strikes on U.S. soil. But they’ve also said there are presently no specific threats.
