According to the police and emergency responder scanners, there's a search for two men with wires around their neck! At West 42nd Street and Broadway, "LOOKING FOR 2 MIDDLE EASTERN WITH GREEN & BLUE WIRES ARROUND THEIR NECK, K9 ASSISTING."

And another, also at West 42nd and Broadway (but in the transit system): "LEVEL 1 MOBILIZATION CALLED REGARDING THE 2 SUSPICIOUS MALES LAST SEEN HEADING TOWARDS UNION SQUARE. 1 MALE IS APPROX 5' 7" 35-40 Y/O WEARING A NAVY BLUE SWEATER W/ GREEN AND BLUE WIRES AROUND HIS NECK POSSIBLY LINKING TO A DEVICE UNDER THE SWEATER. 2ND MALE IS AROUND 25 Y/O SLIM BUILD WEARING A BROWN SHIRT AND BROWN SHOES."

On Monday, two "suspicious" Middle Eastern males were removed from a United flight (one had disobeyed the flight crew's order not to use the bathroom before takeoff) but that was a false alarm. And NYC is on edge, what with the alleged terror plot.
