FBI: No threat to Hawaii after Boston Marathon

Honolulu Marathon

HONOLULU (AP) – The FBI says there are no threats to Hawaii in the aftermath of the explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

FBI spokesman Tom Simon said Monday the bureau has no information of any credible threat to Hawaii.

Deputy Chief Dave Kajihiro of the Honolulu Police Department says officers will make more frequent checks of certain facilities and locations as a precaution. He says the department hasn’t heard of any threats locally.

Local law enforcement in cities around the United States and abroad are increasing security in the aftermath of Monday’s explosions, which killed two and injured more than 100.

Honolulu’s marathon is held in December, with a route that runs through the tourist area of Waikiki.
