WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a warning over potential attacks during the Independence Day celebrations in the United States on July 4.
The DHS said the United States would modify its security measures ahead of the holiday amid the terrorist attacks in Kuwait, France and Tunisia on Friday that left more than 60 dead.
“These kind of warnings go out routinely, but there is nothing routine about this particular one to me," Morell said at CBS News morning program. "I wouldn't be surprised if we're sitting here a week from today talking about an attack over the weekend in the United States.”
On Friday, a terrorist attack in France was carried out at a US-owned gas company near Lyon, leaving one dead and two injured. In Tunisia, two gunmen opened fire on Friday at beachfront hotel killing up to 40 people. Meanwhile, in Kuwait, at least 27 people were killed at a Shiite mosque after a suicide bomber detonated an explosive during Friday prayers.
