Will You Be Travelling To Europe?



U.S. issues travel alert for Europe, 

citing threat of terrorist attacks


The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert for Europe on Monday, 
saying
 U.S. citizens should be aware of a continued threat of terrorist attacks
 throughout  continent.
In the alert, the State Department cited recent incidents in France, Russia, Sweden
and the United Kingdom and said Islamic State and al Qaeda "have the ability to
 plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe."
The State Department's previous travel alert for Europe, issued ahead of the winter
 holiday season, expired in February. A State Department official said Monday's
 alert was not prompted by a specific threat, but rather recognition of the
continuing risk of attacks especially ahead of the summer holidays. The alert
 expires on Sept. 1.
Malls, government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks,
airports and other locations are all possible targets for attacks, the State
 Department's alert said.
