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.

The French alert for the UK comes after the US issued a general travel alert for Europe on Sunday, warning of a "high threat" in France and Germany.

France has been on its second-highest level of terror alert for more than a week, The Guardian reported.

Yesterday, France arrested nine men under suspicion of trafficking arms and explosives and, in a separate raid, three men suspected of offering housing and false identification papers to foreigners trying to enter France.
