The FBI asked law enforcement agencies across the United States on Sunday to operate at the highest possible state of
alert for "any act of terrorism or violence" domestically following the beginning of military strikes inside
Security at airports and ports and around Washington DC and at other locations went on high alert.
"Coinciding with today's military action, the FBI through the National Threat Warning System has again requested all law
enforcement to be at the highest level of vigilance and be prepared to respond to any act of terrorism or violence
should it become necessary," the FBI said in a statement.
"Further, all law enforcement agencies have been asked to evaluate whether additional local security measures are
warranted in light of the military operations and the current threat level," the agency added.
