Mideast Peace Security

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) _ With a high profile Mideast peace
conference days away, federal authorities are urging law
enforcement agencies in Annapolis, Maryland to be extra sensitive
to potential terrorist threats.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI say there are no
credible threats by domestic groups. Still the agencies say they're
wary of possible lone terrorists.

The Annapolis conference at the Naval Academy is expected to
launch the first round of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in seven
years. The U.S. hopes the talks will result in the creation of a
Palestinian state by January 2009.

Homeland Security says the threat-assessment bulletin was sent
out of an "abundance of caution.''
