New York authorities have increased security at "sensitive" locales rollowing the deadly suicide bombing at a Manchester Ariana Grande concert.
Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, says he ordered extra patrols for "high-profile locations" such as airports and the subway "out of an abundance of caution," given recent attacks in Europe.
"This apparent act of terrorism, targeting a concert attended by thousands of teenagers and young people, is an inexplicable and abhorrent assault on our universal values as human beings," Cuomo said in a statement.
"An attack on one is an attack on all, and New York stands in solidarity with the British people and our friends around the world against the forces of hate and terror."
According to the U.S.Department of Homeland Security, work is being done to ascertain intelligence and to be prepared to lend assistance to British counterparts.
"At this time, we have no information to indicate a specific credible threat involving music venues in the United States," said DHS in a statement. "However, the public may experience increased security in and around public places and events as officials take additional precautions."
Nineteen victims died and another 50 were injured in the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena, police say.It is the worst such attack in the U.K.since 2005.
