According to the online edition of The Daily Mirror, UK based tabloid newspaper, the FBI is probing a major terror attack planned for the day before the US elections in multiple states, according to reports.
It is thought that al-Qaeda is plotting to strike in Texas, New York and Virginia but specific locations are not yet known.
The threat comes just four days before the polls officially open ending the closely-fought race for the White House between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
An FBI spokesman told CBS News: “The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.
“The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
The terror alert comes as the US beefs up its cyber defences amid fears hackers could target electronic voting systems on polling day.
