The State Department is warning U.S. citizens about the “potential risks of travel to and throughout Europe” following last week’s terror attacks in Brussels, but Secretary of State John Kerry says he would not advise against such travel.
“I would not tell any friend of mine or member my family don’t travel to Europe or elsewhere, but I would say, do so with an awareness of what you’re choosing to do, what activity you undertake and where you are,” Kerry told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
The State Department warning says, “U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using mass transportation. Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places. Exercise particular caution during religious holidays and at large festivals or events.”
