Bulletin Highlights: International Travel Security
The bulletin makes the points that in the aftermath of the Paris attacks, French security is on high alert. This, combined with resource constraints facing terrorist groups, makes it less likely that immediate problems should arise. There is, of course, no certainty. Second, travelers are advised to stay alert and avoid large crowds or public gatherings, which can be targets. Finally, to some extent, existing security protocols had an impact on the Paris events. This is explained in more detail in the bulletin.
