The head of the European Union police agency voiced concern about the possibility of a militant attack on the European soccer championship scheduled in Paris in June, calling the event "an attractive target for terrorists."

Europol chief Rob Wainwright told the German newspaper Die Welt that European authorities had braced for potential attacks long before the Islamic State bombings and militant attacks in Brussels and Paris, and Euro 2016 was no exception.

"It is shockingly easy to attack soft targets like cafes, restaurants or a concert hall," Wainwright told the newspaper in an interview published on Saturday.
