WASHINGTON (AP) _ The FBI’s hot line for reporting terrorism information will be shut down Friday, the bureau said. Anyone with information should call their local FBI office instead.

Law enforcement sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the call volume has dropped and that local FBI offices can now handle the tips.

One source said the number of tips worthy of further investigation has dropped off dramatically.

The number being eliminated is 1-866-483-5137.
