UK warning adds to Euro 2016 security fears


PARIS: Britain warned Tuesday that stadiums and fan zones could be targeted during Euro 2016, adding to security fears over the football extravaganza in France. The warning came a day after Ukraine announced the arrest of a suspected far-right French extremist with a massive weapons cache who was allegedly planning a string of attacks to coincide with the tournament. The Foreign Office warned British citizens there was a “high threat from terrorism” during the month-long championship, though Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokeswoman said the advice was not a response to the arrest.
