NYPD Says Iran Has Conducted Surveillance in NYC

A senior New York Police Department official says law enforcement has interviewed at least 13 people since 2005 with ties to Iran’s government who were seen taking pictures of New York City landmarks. Police consider the activity to be pre-operational surveillance. Mitchell Silber, the NYPD’s director of intelligence analysis, told Congress that New York’s international significance as a terror target and its large Jewish population make the city a likely place for Iran or its proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah, to strike. Silber says the 13 people interviewed by law enforcement were ultimately released. – AP
