A terror attack in London has New York City increasing security

The New York City Police Department says it is beefing up security at the British consulate, military recruiting stations and other locations due to an apparent terror attack in London.

The NYPD released a statement Wednesday saying the move was not based on information the facilities were targeted but on an "abundance of caution."

Two men with butcher knives apparently hacked another man to death near a London barracks on Wednesday. Police said the men were shot and wounded by police.

British officials said the attack appeared to be an act of terrorism, possibly motivated by radical Islam.
