Dozens of police officers swarmed one of Washington DC’s busiest stations with dogs and bomb technicians during Tuesday’s morning rush hour, to demonstrate that the US capital city’s transit system can thwart possible terror attacks.
At around 7:30 am (1330 GMT), some 50 officers from various Metro police units — including its new anti-terror team, special response teams and criminal investigators — began their work  at the Union Station subway stop near the US Capitol building that houses Congress.
“The event is meant to remind riders that Metro remains vigilant against terrorist activity,” Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority spokeswoman Cathy Asato said in a recorded statement.
“It is important to remember there is no current threat to the transit agency or any elevated threat level.”
