US intelligence has warned of a possible terror threat on Monday in America, just a day before the presidential election, according to CBS news.

Offcials have told joint terrorism task forces that there is a possibility Al-Qaeda will attack three states.

The credibility of the reported threat has not been confirmed, however counter-terrorism officials have been informed. 

A senior FBI official told CBS News: “The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.

"The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
