(Newser) – Wall Street and its bigwigs may be al-Qaeda’s next target. The FBI confirmed that major financial institutions have been briefed on threats gleaned from an al-Qaeda magazine and blogger, and insisted those threats were general in nature. But WNBC has learned officials are concerned that some executives’ names have been specifically discussed. The possible plot may involved terrorists in Yemen, who may be looking to send bombs, Anthrax, or other biological or chemical agents to bankers through the mail.
