WASHINGTON (AP) ó President-elect Joe Biden will no longer be taking an Amtrak train to Washington for his inauguration because of security concerns, a person briefed on the decision told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The president-electís decision reflects growing worries over potential threats in the Capitol and across the U.S. in the lead-up to Bidenís Jan. 20 inauguration.

Security in Washington has ramped up considerably in preparation for the inauguration after the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump, and the FBI warned over the weekend of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to the event.

The person briefed on Bidenís decision spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters. The news was first reported by CNN.
