Capitol Police: No specific threat to Capitol but be careful
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Capitol Police are telling congressional offices that while there are no specific threats against the Capitol following the Paris terrorist attacks, lawmakers and their aides should take precautions and be vigilant.
A memo the police emailed to lawmakers' offices Monday says that "out of an abundance of caution," people should use the tunnels that connect the Capitol with the adjacent House and Senate office buildings. It urges those who work for Congress to make sure their offices know where they are.
The email says the Capitol Police have an "increased presence and visibility" on the Capitol complex in the wake of the Friday attacks in France. It calls on people working on Capitol Hill to report anything suspicious.
