WASHINGTON — The Associated Press has learned the Obama administration is considering a broad warning for US citizens to avoid public places in Europe due to new al-Qaida threats.

Such a move could have significant implications for European tourism.

US officials told the AP on Saturday that the State Department may issue a travel warning as early as Sunday advising Americans to stay away from European tourist sites, transportation hubs and other facilities because of new threat information.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declined to comment on the matter. But he said the administration remains focused on al-Qaida threats to US interests and will take appropriate steps to protect Americans.
