FBI Is Investigating Al-Qaeda Terror Plans In Texas, New York And Virginia.

The FBI is probing a terror plan by terrorist group, Al-Qaeda, a day to US election in Texas, New York And Virginia, according to reports.

The group is planning an attack on the three states, but the location of the attack is yet unknown. 


According to a FBI spokesperson; 

The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.

The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.

The FBI is also beefing up its cyber defence system as it fears hackers might want to target its electronic voting systems on voting day. The department of Homeland security is checking and scannning vulnerabilities in the election system before the polling day.

In August, the FBI sent out a flash alert to Illinois and Arizona after detecting a breach in the voter registration database. 

Experts believe that the chances of hacking the election are remote, because the machines are not connected to the internet.
