There is breaking news from New York City where Mayor Bloomberg and police commissioner Ray Kelly are about to address.
Reports that the suspects here planned a future attack in Times Square here is the mayor actually confirming that report moments ago.
Well good afternoon I'm joined here in City -- by police commissioner Ray Kelly.
A ten days ago our city and nation receive today are terrific reminder that we remain targets for terrorists.
And immediately upon news of the explosions in Boston we fully mobilized the new York city police departments -- counterterrorism operations.
Because we thought there was a possibility that they could be a related attack here.
We now know that that possibility was in fact all too real.
Last night we were informed by the FBI that -- surviving attacker revealed that New York City was next on their list of targets.
He told the FBI apparently that he and his brother had intended to drive to new York and designating additional explosives in Times Square.
They had built these additional explosives and we know they have the capacity to carry out the attacks.
If god forbid they had arrived in New York City and gone to Times Square.
All right the mayor and -- his security arrangements were in place to handle that and and then wrapped it up.
-- -- -- Monitor for more news he's done speaking.
So I think that was about the integrity of his remarks.
We have more -- just ahead but for.
