More than 20 terror plots foiled in New York: Police chief

WASHINGTON: More than 20 terror plots have been foiled in New York since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, according to the city’s police chief on Tuesday (Sep 8), who said the risk of another devastating attack remains “greater than ever”.

Speaking before a hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security, New York City Police Chief Bill Bratton warned of “multiple hazards” on the terrorism front, from “lone wolf” attackers to radicalised supporters of the brand of Islam espoused by Islamic State (IS).
