US warns of possible terrorist strikes at Euro 2016

Washington: The United States warned its citizens yesterday that this summer's Euro 2016 football tournament and related events across France and Europe will present "potential targets for terrorists."

The month-long European Championship finals start in Paris on June 10, drawing the best international teams from the continent and hundreds of thousands of fans.

"We are alerting US citizens to the risk of potential terrorist attacks throughout Europe, targeting major events, tourist sites, restaurants, commercial centers and transportation. Euro Cup stadiums, fan zones, and unaffiliated entertainment venues broadcasting the tournaments in France and across Europe represent potential targets for terrorists," the State Department said.
