LSP monitors security situation in Boston

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The commander of Louisiana State Police says his agency and law enforcement agencies all over the country are monitoring the situation in Boston following the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

Col. Mike Edmonson said Monday afternoon that the Louisiana monitoring takes place in the "fusion" center at state police headquarters. That's an around-the-clock operation that works to identify threats of violence or terrorism by communicating with local and federal authorities.

Edmonson said there so far is no indication of any Louisiana connection to the Boston explosions.
