REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – New York commuters were on edge Thursday after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi told reporters at the U.N. that his country’s intelligence agency had uncovered an imminent ISIS plot targeting U.S. and Paris subway systems.

But Iraqi officials, U.S. intelligence, and law enforcement agencies say there are no indications of an ISIS plot.

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio urged residents to go about their business as usual.

“What everyone should know, the most important fact right now is, we are convinced that New Yorkers are safe,” said De Blasio. “We’re convinced that people should go about their normal routine. Terrorists want us to live in fear – we refuse to live in fear.”
