Security up in some US locales, business as usual at others
NEW YORK - Police in the United States increased patrols in some areas in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris that killed more than 120 people. But authorities noted that the stepped-up security was out of an abundance of caution rather than a response to a specific threat.
French consulates in New York and Boston received extra security along with French-owned sites in Washington.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said state agencies, including the State Police and National Guard, are on heightened alert. Times Square and key transportation sites are seeing increased patrols.
But elsewhere, like Minnesota's Mall of America, it was business as usual.
