In Wake Of Plot Report, NY Officials Take Trains
New York's top government officials have taken to the nation's largest subway system following the disclosure of an alleged terrorist attack on trains in U.S. cities.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Tom Prendergast rode a train from the World Trade Center to Penn Station in Manhattan Thursday afternoon.
Cuomo said there was no specific, credible threat to New York City subways.
The officials took to the rails to urge calm after Iraq's prime minister said captive Islamic State militants told intelligence agents of an alleged plot to attack subways in the United States and France.
About 5.5 million daily passengers take city subways.
