New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) deployed 100 additional National Guard soldiers to transit centers in the state on Wednesday, citing an "abundance of caution" after packages apparently containing explosives were intercepted in the city and suburbs this week.
Five bombs were sent to Democratic figures in New York City and Washington, D.C., this week. All of them were found and removed by authorities before they could detonate.
Three of those explosives were intercepted at locations in New York, including packages sent to the Clinton family, Democratic mega-donor George Soros and CNN's Manhattan headquarters.
"New Yorkers have never succumbed to fear or intimidation, and today will be no different," Cuomo said in the statement. "We are tough, we are resilient, and we will not allow terrorist thugs to change the way we lead our lives."
