Bulgaria: Washington Warns of an Increased Terrorist Threat in Europe at Christmas and New Year twitter.com

Authorities in the United States have issued recommendations for their citizens traveling to Europe, warning them that there will be an increased terrorist threat during the Christmas and New Year holidays on the continent, FOCUS News Agency quoted.
"Last year, there was a large number of casualties on the Christmas market in Berlin in December and at a night club in Istanbul at New Year Eve," the US government's warning said.

The State Department warns that recent attacks in the UK, France, Russia, Spain, Sweden demonstrated that an Islamic state and al-Qaeda remain active and capable of attacking.

"While local governments continue their operations against terrorism, the Department remains concerned about future terrorist attacks, and US citizens must be alert to the possibility of terrorist sympathizers or self-radicalizing extremists committing attacks with little or no warning," wrote the US Department of State, adds Focus.
