L.A. authorities boost security after threatened rail attack
LOS ANGELES | Heavily armed
sheriff’s deputies stood watch Tuesday at a Los Angeles-area subway station named in an unconfirmed threat, and Mayor Eric Garcetti took the line to work to show confidence in security measures.
Temporary barriers were in place at the entrance to the Red Line station near Universal Studios, and some commuters were subjected to bag searches as deputies stood by with rifles and dogs.
The mayor, who had urged people to go about their normal routines, used the station to get to work.
