Geneva lowers threat level after 18 days on alert

GENEVA- The Swiss city of Geneva lowered its alert level, police said on Monday, 18 days after it began a search for a number of people who officials said had possible links to terrorism.
A police statement said Security and Economy Department of Geneva canton, or region, had decided to return the alert level to the level in place before Dec. 10, after consulting with federal authorities.
"A new assessment of the terrorist threat situation after the Christmas holidays justifies this decision, the statement said. "Moreover, all the recent events considered as potential targets, be they diplomatic, religious or commercial, are now over."
