Officials Urge Americans To Be Vigilant Following Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is urging Americans “to be vigilant and prepared” ahead of the July 4th holiday following attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait.

Johnson says people should attend Independence Day events as planned but “remain vigilant” and report any suspicious activity. He says U.S. authorities will adjust security measures, including those unseen by the public, as necessary.

The U.S. Embassy in Paris issued a similar warning, after a man with suspected ties to French Islamic radicals rammed a car into an American-owned gas factory. The severed head of a local businessman was left hanging at the factory’s entrance.
