New York is on high alert as world leaders begin arriving for the United Nations general assembly.
Security in the city has been elevated since US intelligence agencies received information about “specific and credible” threats of a terrorist attack planned to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
The annual UN general assembly opened its 66th session on Tuesday, but the main events, including speeches by leaders, start on Monday at the UN headquarters on Manhattan’s east side.
