NEW YORK/WASHINGTON - New York police amassed a display of force on Friday including checkpoints that snarled traffic in response to intelligence about a car or truck bomb plot linked to the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Officers armed with automatic weapons were stationed at city landmarks including Wall Street, Times Square and the Sept. 11 memorial site where the Twin Towers once stood.
