VIDEO: Police Warned of Possible Al Qaeda Attacks in U.S. Monday

Sources told CBS News that U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states for Monday, the day before the national election.

It is believed New York, Texas, and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned.

U.S. authorities are taking the threat seriously, though the sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn't been confirmed. Counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of an abundance of caution.
