Saudis Warn of New Attacks Against Europe

Security is high in Europe, as Saudi intelligence warns of new threats by al Qaeda to strike the continent—particularly France. “The threat is real and our vigilance is intact," said French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux. Officials thwarted at least two attacks in France in the past year, CNN reports, and French authorities arrested 12 people for suspected terrorist ties in the last month alone. The new warnings follow earlier advisories from U.S. officials, based on intelligence collected from a German-Afghan in U.S. custody in Afghanistan.
