EU says taking precautions after U.S. says will close embassies

BRUSSELS - The European Union is taking "all necessary precautions" after the United States said it would close some embassies on Sunday because of security concerns, a spokesman said.
"We are aware of the move by the US and we are in contact with our US counterparts," European Commission spokesman Alexandre Polack said. "Delegations of the EU in the affected region are liaising with US embassies."
The EU had no immediate comment on an announcement by the US government that it was issuing a worldwide travel alert, warning US citizens about the "continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa."
