A spokesman for Slovakia's Interior Ministry said on Sunday, October 3, that it is monitoring the on-the-ground situation after the United States and Britain warned their citizens of an increased risk of terrorist attacks in Europe earlier in the day, the TASR newswire wrote.

“We will release any information obtained which the public should know about,” the ministry's Gábor Grendel told the TASR newswire.

US authorities are urging its citizens in Europe to be alert in public and in crowded places. American and European security experts have been voicing concerns for several days that terrorists could be planning to carry out an armed commando attack in Europe like the one in 2008 in the Indian city of Mumbai.

The Czech Republic tightened up security measures at its international airport in Prague and at other unnamed facilities, TASR wrote.
