NEW YORK - New York City police were on alert to possible revenge attacks following the US killing of American-born militant Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, police commissioner Ray Kelly said on Friday.

Awlaki, identified by US intelligence as "chief of external operations" for al-Qaida's Yemen branch and a Web-savvy propagandist for the Islamist cause, was killed in a CIA drone attack in a remote Yemeni town, US officials said.

"We know al-Awlaki had followers in the United States including New York City, and for that reason we remain alert to the possibility that someone might want to avenge his death," Kelly said in a statement.
