Suspicious object stops trains between NY and NJ

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Trains between New York and New Jersey
were suspended after a suspicious object was found outside the
entrance to the Hudson River tunnel, a spokeswoman for New
Jersey Transit said on Tuesday.

"We have suspended train services into and out of Penn
Station New York and Newark and also Midtown direct trains are
going into Hoboken," she said.

A transport source said the object appeared to be a
10-gallon (45.5-litres) drum.
