NYPD on high alert following Islamic State threat

Days after the Paris attacks, the Islamic State group is now urging Islamic militants to kill intelligence officers, police officers, soldiers and civilians.



The NYPD is on high alert following the threat, calling for "lone wolf" terrorists to target the U.S., France, Canada and Australia.



The threat is a re-posting of a threat from September.



Sen. Charles Schumer says there are currently no specific threats against New York.
