PARIS — Saudi intelligence services warned of a new terror threat from Al-Qaida against Europe, particularly in France, Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said on Sunday during a joint TV and radio interview.

The warning of a potential attack by Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was received "in the last few hours, few days," Hortefeux said on RTL-LCI-Le Figaro's weekly talk show.

European officials were informed that "Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was doubtless active or envisioned being active" on the "European continent, notably France," he added. "The threat is real."

The warning from Saudi Arabia is the latest in a series of alerts that have put French security forces and others in high-vigilance mode.
