US advises citizens to maintain ‘high level of vigilance’ in wake of Paris terror attacks
The US has issued a travel alert for its citizens around the world following three days of terror in Paris that left 17 dead. In France and the UK, security is tight as authorities brace for possible further attacks.
The United States on Friday warned Americans to be wary of terror strikes all over the world, following an attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday which left 12 people dead.
Another four were killed in separate sieges at a Jewish supermarket and a print shop on Friday.
