A travel alert has been issued for Americans traveling to Europe over the summer months.
The U.S. State Department issued the alert saying recent widely-reported incidents in France, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom demonstrate that ISIS, al-Qa'ida, and their affiliates have the ability to plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe.
According to the alert, extremists continue to focus on tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, and local government facilities as viable targets.
In addition, hotels, clubs, restaurants, parks, places of worship and airports and other soft targets remain possible locations for attacks.
U.S. citizens are urged to remain alert to the possibility that terrorist sympathizers or self-radicalized extremists may conduct attacks with little or no warning. People should exercise additional vigilance during the upcoming travel season when large crowds may be common.
The travel alert expires on September 1, 2017.
