WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House does not expect the U.S. to raise its terrorism threat warning level.

That's after British authorities raised their terror threat level to severe, the country's second highest level. The decision is related to developments in Iraq and Syria, though there is no information to suggest an attack is imminent.

But White House spokesman Josh Earnest says authorities don't expect to raise the level in the U.S.

Earnest says U.S. officials are in touch with British counterparts about their decision. He says the U.S. is also monitoring the threat of foreigners fighting alongside militants in Iraq and Syria who could travel back to their home countries.
