Report: Hundreds of Hizbullah Sympathizers Live in New York

(Reuters) Mark Hosenball - Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security, warned last month that an investigation by his staff had determined that "hundreds" of "Iranian and Hizbullah terrorists" were in the U.S. Iranian diplomats and possible Hizbullah operatives have been seen conducting apparent surveillance missions at sensitive targets such as New York subways and bridges, and at nuclear power plants and tunnels elsewhere in the U.S. in the past 10 years. A law enforcement official said that the New York Police Department believes that between 200 and 300 Hizbullah sympathizers live in New York City. Between 10 and 20 are relatives of Hizbullah leaders or fighters who were killed in action. At least a handful of people in New York connected with Hizbullah have also undergone military training in Lebanon, the official said.
