The same day that France made 12 arrests connected to terror plots, its Foreign Ministry urged French citizens visiting the United Kingdom to be cautious, warning them that a terrorist attack on public transport or in the tourist areas is likely. The warning came in a statement on the ministry website late Tuesday night, Radio France International reported.
France has been on its second-highest level of terror alert for more than a week, The Guardian reported.
