(NEW YORK) - U.S. officials briefed by the Justice Department after the Paris terror attacks tell The Associated Press there is no evidence of any specific or credible threat targeting the American homeland.

Nonetheless patrols were being increased and security measures were being stepped up nationwide after more than 120 people were killed and hundreds more injured in Friday's assault on the French capital.

Heavily-armed officers stood guard in Times Square and extra security was sent to French government sites in New York, Boston and Washington.

One of the U.S. officials says intelligence officials detected increased chatter encouraging an attack on the United States but nothing of any credible substance.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss the briefing publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
