The FBI and New York City police are conducting a joint investigation on suspected terrorist activities in the New York borough of Queens. There have been no arrests so far, local media say.

REUTERS -  New York City police are conducting an investigation into suspected terrorism in the borough of Queens, a spokesman said on Monday.

"There was activity in Queens last night by the NYPD and the FBI that was part of an ongoing joint terrorism taskforce investigation," Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said.

The FBI conducted searches early on Monday morning but would not say it they were terrorism related, NY1 television reported, citing the FBI.

There have been no arrests, NY1 said.

In Washington, a federal law enforcement official said searches had taken place but could not provide any details.

New York City has been on high alert since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
