New York Takes Precautions After London Bomb

Friday, 29 June 2007 12:00 AM

NEW YORK -- New York police took unspecified precautions on Friday after explosives experts in London defused a car bomb packed with gasoline, gas and nails, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

"We'll take a little bit of extra precaution," Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show on WABC. "We're going to ramp up a little bit, not dramatically. Some you will notice, some you will not."

New York normally puts police on heightened alert in response to security incidents in other countries.

As a city that has twice been attacked by Islamic extremists - a truck bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the attacks of September 11, 2001, - New York has police representatives in hot spots around the world, including London.

Bloomberg said the city was awaiting a report from its London-based officer.

British police said the bomb in London's busy theater district could have caused huge loss of life. The bomb was found in a green Mercedes car parked outside a night club shortly after 1 a.m. (midnight GMT) when several hundred people were still in the area, about half-a-mile from the prime minister's Downing Street residence.
