In its first-ever worldwide travel alert, the State Department said  “Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Daesh), Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions.”

“U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using transportation,” it said. “Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid large crowds or crowded places. Exercise particular caution during the holiday season and at holiday festivals or events.” The alert is in effect until February 24.
