Extra Security at Domestic Transportation Hubs After Al-Qaida Threat

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- After intelligence determined the credibility of a possible terrorist threat, the U.S. State Department ordered 21 embassies and consulates closed on Sunday.

In the latest precautionary step, ABC News has learned that security measures will also be increased at U.S. airports, train stations and other transportation hubs.

In addition to the added security, travelers coming into the United States will also receive extra scrutiny. The threats against U.S. targets were reportedly made by al-Qaida.
