State Department Lifts Travel Warning For Americans In Europe

A nearly 8-month long travel warning for Americans in Europe will expire on Saturday and not be renewed, the Associated Press reports.

In October, the State Department advised Americans to be wary of a Mumbai-style attack on a European city.

The threat expires--who knows what that means--on Saturday, one day after the Royal Wedding will draw millions to London.

An anonymous State Department official who was not authorized to speak with the press, said: "We do not plan to renew it," implying that the threat may no longer be considered credible.

In October, a State Department official told the Associated Press: "This travel alert is a cumulative result of information we have received over an extended period. We are constantly monitoring a range of threat streams and have monitored this and others for some time."

Citizens were advised to be vigilant and understand the potential for terrorist attacks on public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.
