Fox reports: U.S. intelligence officials reportedly have warned executives at major Wall Street banks that they may be targeted in a terror plot by Al Qaeda militants based in Yemen.

Large financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, and others have been briefed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and New York Police Department about the nature of the threats, WNBC-TV reported late Monday.

There was “no indication of a targeted assassination plot,” an unnamed official told the station, explaining the threats were general in nature. However, there are still fears that the names of certain Wall Street executives have been discussed by terrorists based overseas, the report said.

Intelligence analysts said they were concerned Yemen-based militants may try to send package bombs or biological or chemical agents to bankers in the mail, a threat that has led authorities to urge the companies to increase security in and around their mailrooms.
