Vienna police said on Saturday that a ‘friendly intelligence service’ has warned numerous European capitals of the possibility of a shooting or bomb attack in Europe before the New Year.

“Several possible names of potential attackers were mentioned, who were checked and the investigation based on (these checks) has so far yielded no concrete results,” Vienna police said in a statement, six weeks after 130 people were killed in Islamist militant attacks in Paris.
