Pyongyang, February 15 (KCNA) -- US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said the threat of terrorism against the United States is at its most heightened state since the September 11, 2001 attacks.

She said America now faces new threats from groups inspired by Al Qaeda and from so-called "homegrown" terrorists who could already be inside the United States.

Speaking at a congressional panel, she said, "And in some ways the threat today may be at its most heightened state since the attacks nearly 10 years ago."
