Officials at New Hampshire's major airport say employees are on heightened alert in the aftermath of the deadly attacks in Paris.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport Assistant Director Thomas Malafronte told WMUR-TV that all employees and tenants have been told to remain on a heightened level of awareness after gun and bomb attacks in Paris Friday killed at least 129 people.

Malafronte says the heightened security protocols should not affect the travelling public.

Gov. Maggie Hassan says state police are working with national Homeland Security, the FBI and local police departments "to exercise extra vigilances in light of the heinous attacks."
