NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York police took unspecified precautions on Friday after explosives experts in London defused a car bomb packed with gasoline, gas and nails, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.
"We'll take a little bit of extra precaution," Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show on WABC. "We're going to ramp up a little bit, not dramatically. Some you will notice, some you will not."
New York normally puts police on heightened alert in response to security incidents in other countries.
As a city that has twice been attacked by Islamic extremists -- a truck bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the attacks of September 11, 2001, -- New York has police representatives in hot spots around the world, including London.
Bloomberg said the city was awaiting a report from its London-based officer.
British police said the bomb in London's busy theater district could have caused huge loss of life. The bomb was found in a green Mercedes car parked outside a night club shortly after 1 a.m. (midnight GMT) when several hundred people were still in the area, about half-a-mile from the prime minister's Downing Street residence.
The best precautions are to cut off the head of the snake. How ever many million snakes there are
It's nice that these poor Pakistani terrorists can afford to buy a Mercedes to blow up. Obviously their root problem is poverty.

They probably stole it, but your point is well taken anyway, since they seem to have no problem buying airfare, explosives, cell phones, guns, computers, ammunition, etc, etc.
Could be one in any Taxi in the city...
I paid $100 for my nearly pristine, low miles 1984 300DT. From the photos, it appears the terrorists used either a 190 or E300. Anyone here that can tell for certain?
...there is no war on terror...just ask the democraps
al-Qaida is not content on blowing up one nuclear device or even simply a dirty nuke but wants to explode real nuclear devices in seven U.S. cities simultaneously.
these cities are New York, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Miami, Boston, Houston, and Los Angeles.
It’s not my intent to dispute you, but where did you get that list?
I got it here...but i read it a cpl diff places
Wait, lefties like Mike B and the Dem Party don’t really think that Islamofascism is a threat nowadays. How can this be? Surely these attacks are Right Wingers dressed in burkas? Kennedy,Durbin, Leahy have convinced all of us that Bush and the military are really fighting freedom fighter insurgents. Isn’t that so?
