Travel warning for Americans in Europe will end

A State Department official says a U.S. travel advisory for Americans traveling in Europe that was set to expire the day after the royal wedding will not be extended.

The U.S. State Department advised Americans in October to be wary amid reports that terrorists were planning a Mumbai-style attack on a European city. More than 160 people were killed in that 2008 attack, when gunmen fired on crowds in a shooting spree.

A U.S. State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, says Wednesday the threat expires Saturday _ the day after the wedding.

"We do not plan to renew it," the U.S. official said, suggesting that the threat is no longer considered active or credible.
