British warning over 'terrorism' risk in France, Germany

3rd October 2010, Comments 0 comments

Britain's foreign ministry updated Sunday its advice for citizens travelling France and Germany, warning that there was a "high threat" of terrorism in the two European countries.

"We can confirm that the travel advice for France and Germany has been updated," a Foreign Office spokeswoman told AFP.

"Like other large European countries, they have a high threat of terrorism, which is reflected in our updated travel advice."

The warning came shortly after the US State Department issued a travel alert for Europe, warning of "the potential for terrorist attacks" and urging US citizens to take precautions in public places and transportation systems.
