New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to hold ‘terrorism-related’ news conference

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is to hold a news conference at 19:30 New York time (23:30 London), with the topic expected to be something to do with terrorism.

Update: Michael Bloomberg announces arrest of alleged bomb suspect Jose Pimental

No other details have been revealed, other than that Bloomberg will be joined by New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance. The presence of Kelly and Vance has led some to speculate that an attempted terrorist attack has been thwarted.

New Yorkers are naturally anxious any time terrorist related incidents are mentioned, given what happened in the city ten years ago.
