US Texas governor warns of possible terror attack

The governor of the U.S. state of Texas on Friday warned of a possible terrorist threat against the state, urging the public to be vigilant and report anything suspicious over the coming days.


Greg Abbott's warning came following a statement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in which the agency said that they had received a possible al-Qaida terror threat against the United States on the eve of Election Day on Nov. 8.

Texas, along with New York and Virginia, was listed as a possible target of the attack.

In a statement, Abbott said that his office was monitoring the situation and working closely with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

"Texans should go about their daily lives as usual, but remain vigilant over the next several days and report any suspicious activity to state or local law enforcement," Abbott said, vowing the state will continue "to do everything it can to ensure the safety and security of its citizens."

The FBI is working to assess relative intelligence so as to disrupt any potential threats.
