India port in terror attack


Two warships have been removed from the Port of Kolkata, India, following a warning given by intelligence agencies of an attack on the city and its port.

The alert came after federal intelligence agencies warned police in West Bengal of a potential attack on the port, according to Reuters.

The ships were involved in a ceremony as part of a run-up to Navy Day next month but had to be evacuated before their departure on Friday.

The inspector in charge of the state control room said: “The alert is for the port area. We have taken security measures following the alert.”

After a recent terrorist attack near the Wagah checkpoint between India and Pakistan, both countries and their ports have been on high alert regarding the threat of terror.
