UK says terror threat in France, Germany now high
LONDON — Britain’s Foreign Office has upgraded its travel advice for France and Germany, warning Britons going to those countries that the threat of terrorism there is high.
Before Sunday’s change, the government’s travel advice for France and Germany was that the threat from terror attacks there was “general.”
The update came shortly after the U.S. State Department issued a travel alert warning Americans of potential terrorist threats in Europe and urged them to be vigilant in public places.
Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May said that the threat of terrorism in the U.K. remains unchanged at “severe,” meaning an attack is highly likely.
