VOA: State Department Issues Europe Travel Alert
The U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert for what it called the "continued threat of terrorist attacks throughout Europe."
The alert, which expires September 1, cites recent incidents in France, Russia, Sweden and Britain that the State Department says show the ability of Islamic state, al-Qaida or others to carry out attacks.

It further states that extremists focus on tourist areas, transportation hubs, markets and local government facilities.
