Iranians with ties to the Tehran government have been caught videotaping and snapping photos of New York City landmarks several times over the past decade, a top city police official testified Wednesday, as he warned the city could be the “ideal target” for Iran if tensions escalate.

Mitchell Silber, the NYPD’s director of intelligence analysis, told Congress that Iranians may be using “diplomatic cover” to conduct “hostile reconnaissance” on America’s biggest city.

Silber cycled a string of incidents where law enforcement questioned Iranians, who turned out to be working with the Iranian mission to the United Nations or otherwise tied to the government.
