A travel alert has been issued by The State Department for Americans who are in or headed to Europe, reports abc7. "Law enforcement and intelligence sources in Europe said terrorist teams have possibly devised a plan to attack European tourist attractions, airports and hotels." This morning at Los Angeles International Airport, however, "travelers went about their business as usual despite the alert." Flights remain operational, and groups, such as the LA Lakers who are in the UK for pre-season play, have said they won't change plans but will take precaution and employ added security.
