Americans travelling to or living in Europe warned to be on alert

Officials say there’s no indication of a plot to target the U.S. itself


Though the FBI and Homeland Security Department say they have no indication that terrorists are targeting the U.S. or its citizens as part of a renewed threat in Europe, the U.S. government has issued a warning to Americans living in or traveling to Europe to be cautious because of possible terror plots there. The U.K. and Japan have issued similar warnings to their citizens abroad, noting the most susceptible countries include Britain, France and Germany. As of Monday morning, Canada had not issued a travel advisory, but made statements to the media warning people headed to Europe to be alert. Security officials say terrorists may be plotting attacks in Europe with assault weapons on public places, similar to the deadly 2008 shooting in Mumbai, India. But European officials have provided no details about specific targets.

  1. hmmm….the countries mentioned also have some of the highest Muslim populations in Europe. I think immigration reforms need to be revised.

  2. Is it only me who is tired of all these warnings? It seems to benefit the terrorists more.

  3. Note to potential victims: Please die quietly to avoid inflaming Islamaphobia. Those that are maimed should keep a low profile after the incident for the same reason. You wouldn't want people to start questioning the benefits of immigration and muticulturalism, would you?

    • Hush now, Frank. The proletariat are sleeping.
