Increased terror warnings ‘add to hysteria’ – ETOA

European Tour Operators Association (ETOA) has warned Europe not to overreact in light of the recent terrorist warnings. The association has advised that travel continues as normal, otherwise “only add to the hysteria and compound the damage al Qaeda or other groups are trying to inflict”. “It is difficult to understand what purpose underlies statements advising people to avoid crowded areas. Are the crowds themselves not at risk?” added ETOA Executive Director Tom Jenkins. “Terrorists do not damage an economy by what they do but by the reaction to what they do.  It is vital the public keep these official statements in perspective.”
