The U.S. Department of State issued an alert on Tuesday that appeal citizens to be prepared for extra security screening and unexpected disruptions. The most popular targets for terroristic acts are tourist sites, shopping malls, as well as major sporting events.

According to Ministry of Interior of France, terrorists intend to use a new tactic for maximum panic.
