ROME (Sputnik) — According to the earlier media reports, German security services received information from their Italian colleagues that terrorists, posing as souvenir vendors, would carry out attacks at the beaches of Spain, France and Italy.

The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported, citing a source in country's security services, that there were no terrorist threats and Italy had not exchanged information about the attacks with Germany.

A series of coordinated Daesh attacks in Paris in November, which claimed lives of 130 people, and Brussels attacks in March, which killed 31 people, prompted EU authorities to step up security measures and enhance the exchange of information between the bloc member countries.

In March, media reported, citing intelligence sources that some 400 militants had been trained by Daesh, which is prohibited in a number of countries, including the United States and Russia, to carry out attacks in Europe.
