  • NYPD Stepping Up Patrols In Wake Of London Subway Explosion

The New York Police Department says it's moved extra officers, bomb-detection dogs and heavy weapons teams into the city's transit system as a precaution following the London subway bombing.

An improvised explosive device blew up at the Parsons Green station, injuring at least 20 people during Friday morning's rush hour.

"It makes me feel safe cause they're there, that's on the ground level we feel safe if something was to happen there's police here", the man told WCBS 880's Marla Diamond. The MTA will increase security "out of an overabundance of caution", said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Rappelant être lui-même "un vieux militant de gauche", il a ironisé: "C'est compliqué la gauche, quiconque prétend à l'hégémonie se casse les dents".

One man visiting from London said the extra police presence in Times Square is welcome. "As the mayor of London I can say this and I can speak for Londoners - we are not going to allow them to do so", Khan said.

Security is also being increased at airports, bridges and tunnels.

"No direct threats to NYC, but always remain vigilant/aware of surroundings". "We remain vigilant, and we stand with the people of London".
