New York Police Step Up Security

Police in New York are stepping up their security following deadly Palm Sunday church bombings in Egypt.

Authorities in New York City say there are "no credible threats" , but the bombings in Egypt do come at a sensitive time. Passover begins tonight at sundown and this is Holy Week for Christians.

Passover marks the Jewish celebration of the Hebrews making it out of Egypt. It begins with the seder, a traditional meal that comes with dietary restrictions. The holiday accounts for around ten percent of all the kosher foods sold each year. Passover runs through April 18th.
