BOSTON (CBS) – Security has been stepped up in Boston after a series of coordinated terror attacks in Paris.

State Police say there is no specific threat to Massachusetts, but they have increased security at the State House and Logan Airport.

Boston Police have sent resources to the French Consulate in the city.

“Our prayers are with the French people tonight and our thoughts are also with the French law enforcement and counter-terrorism authorities who are working to end this ongoing threat,” Massachusetts State Police said in a statement.
