New York mayor Michael Bloomberg was hustled to a bomb shelter along with his entourage when a missile warning went off during a visit to the embattled town of Sderot Sunday. Bloomberg flew to Israel Sunday for a daylong trip to express solidarity with Israelis threatened by Hamas rockets and back the strikes against the militant group.
Bloomberg, accompanied by Congressman Gary Ackerman, a Democrat from New York, visited the southern Israeli towns of Ashkelon and Sderot, both of which have been targeted by Hamas rockets over the past several weeks, and met with New Yorkers who had immigrated.

"You should rest assured, if anyone in New York was being threatened, my instruction to the NYPD (New York police) would be to use all the resources at their disposal to protect civilians," Bloomberg said.
