U.S. warns of possible Europe attacks, especially during Euro 2016

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

euro2016The United States warned its citizens on Tuesday of possible summer terrorist attacks in Europe. The warning says that this summer's Euro 2016 soccer tournament and related events across France and Europe will present potential targets for terrorists.

Concern about security in Europe has increased since the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead as well as the March 22 attacks in which two suicide bombers struck Brussels airport and a third the city's metro, killing 32.

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. The U.S. warns its citizens that Euro Cup stadiums, fan zones, and unaffiliated entertainment venues broadcasting the tournaments in France and across Europe represent potential targets for terrorists.

The French government has ruled out cancelling the prestigious tournament, which is expected to draw two million fans to cities across the country.

To strengthen security at Euro 2016, France has extended a state of emergency put in place after attacks last November on a concert hall, cafes, police and a football crowd.
