US Concerned Over 9/11 Anniversary Attacks

U.S. officials have quietly raised the terror threat alert over the possibility that groups could be plotting attacks for September 11 – the tenth anniversary of the fateful 9/11 attacks in the U.S. Documents discussing the possibility of an attack from the Department of Homeland Security were broadcast by ABC News earlier this week.

According to the documents, security officials warned thousands of towns and cities of the possibility of attacks in the coming months. Officials said that in addition to “commemorating” the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, terrorists have an extra motivation to carry out attacks in revenge over  the recent elimination of Osama bin-Laden.
