State Department Issues New Travel Alert for Europe

The advisory pointed to events in Poland and France

The State Department on Tuesday issued a travel warning for Americans visiting Europe about the risk of terror attacks this summer, NBC News reported. 

"The large number of tourists visiting Europe in the summer months will present greater targets for terrorists planning attacks in public locations, especially at large events," the State Department said in a travel advisory.

The advisory pointed to two events in particular — the Catholic Church's World Youth Day in late July in Poland and the European Soccer Championship, which France will host from June 10-July 10 — as potential targets.
