Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(PARIS) -- Saudi intelligence services have warned their European counterparts of a terrorist attack “on the [European] continent, notably in France,” French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said Sunday.

The threat is said to have originated from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Officials in Europe and the United States are on high alert because of a credible but unspecified threat of commando-style terror attacks by militants with Western passports.

The U.S. State Department on Oct. 3 issued a travel alert for Europe to remind travelers of the potential for terrorist attacks on public transportation and tourist locations.
