The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert for Europe Monday, which said that U.S. citizens should be aware of a continued threat of terrorist attacks throughout the continent.
In the alert, the State Department cited recent incidents in France, Russia, Sweden and the United Kingdom and said that Daesh and al Qaeda "have the ability to plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe."
The State Department's previous travel alert for Europe, which was issued ahead of the winter holiday season, expired in February. A State Department official said Monday's alert was not prompted by a specific threat, but rather in recognition of the continuing risk of attacks, especially ahead of the summer holidays. The alert expires September 1.
Malls, government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, airports and other locations are all possible targets for attacks, the State Department's alert added.
