Police in major U.S. cities stepped up security on Tuesday after more than 30 people were killed in attacks on an airport and subway in Belgium, though officials said there was no evidence of specific threats to the United States.
Uniformed officers, some in tactical gear, patrolled airports and transit hubs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington as major airlines including Delta, United and American canceled and rerouted flights headed to Brussels.
“While there’s no known credible threat to (New York State) at this time, we’re stepping up security at high-profile locations,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
In addition to the increased presence of New York City police officers, Cuomo activated National Guard troops to provide additional security at the city’s two airports, as well as major railroad stations.
