CNN.com: FBI warns of new terrorist attacks in next several days

'Giuliani said later Thursday the city would not accept a $10 million donation toward disaster relief from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after the prince suggested the U.S. government's policies in the Middle East were a factor leading to the attack. "I entirely reject that statement," Giuliani said.'

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a major US high-tech investor. Among other investments, he has a 5% stake in Apple.
