America's federal government terrorism officials are currently investigating reports of 9/11 anniversary threat which is credible, but unconfirmed. Also, counter-terrorism officials are still assessing a new report of a threat of an attack in major US cities like New York or Washington, DC by using car or truck bombs, timed to take place near the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to several officials briefed on the matter.

In a statement, a spokesman for the FBI and NYPD said credible, but unconfirmed. American intelligence agencies were urgently pursuing leads overseas in an effort to gauge the seriousness of the threat.
