Terror threat raised by US and UK

The US and Britain both warned yesterday of an increased risk of terrorist attacks in Europe, with Washington saying al Qaeda might target transport infrastructure. The US State Department issued a warning directed at American citizens travelling in Europe, without singling out any specific countries. The UK raised the terrorism threat level in its advice for citizens travelling to Germany and France to “high” from “general”. It left the threat level at home unchanged at “severe,” meaning an attack is highly likely, and said it agreed with the US assessment for the continent as a whole.
