US official: terror alert kept as long as needed

Posted:

 

WROCLAW, Poland (WKOW) --  A U.S. official says the terror alert in Europe will stay in effect as long as long it's needed.

James Steinberg, the Deputy U.S. Secretary of State, says that the terror warnings issued recently by European governments and the U.S. are the result of high levels of intelligence shared between the United States and Europe.

Steinberg says the alert encourages citizens to be aware of danger, something that helped authorities foil the attempted bombing plot in New York City's Times Square.
