Upon descent, captain called flight attendant #1. Once she hung up, I asked her what happened. She told me that she was told that we had a mechanical problem with an engine and that we were diverting. I asked her if we had to prepare the cabin for an evacuate/evacuation and she told me that the captain said that it was not necessary. Right away the captain made a PA informing the passenger about the situation. We landed safely.
