New Delhi: Britain Monday warned of a terror threat in India and asked its nationals to be vigilant, a day after two tourists from Taiwan were shot near Delhi`s Jama Masjid.

"There is a high threat from terrorism throughout India. Terrorists have targeted places in the past which Westerners are known to visit, including public places such as restaurants, hotels, railway stations, markets and places of worship," the British High Commission here said.
