9/11 Update

News

NYPD says one of two vans stolen from a World Trade Center contractor has been found.

Police officials had been investigating two thefts and a third in New Jersey because of unconfirmed threats that al-Qaida was planning a car bomb attack. But police reiterated Sunday that they'd found no evidence linking the thefts to a terrorist plot.

Two dark green Chevy vans had been stolen this month from a construction group. The company has been involved in recovery work at the site and is doing roadwork near 1 World Trade Center.

New York City's sudden beefed-up security measures, just ahead of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 has some questioning the heightened terror threat. Officials say it is meant to foil a plot and ward-off would-be criminals. Investigators also say that specific and credible information about a supposed plan apparently involves three veteran terrorists - one, or two possibly holding US passports.
