State Department Puts Mexico on ‘Travel Warning’ List Because of Danger to Americans There

March 23, 2010 03:59

A U.S. State Department official said on Friday that the decision to upgrade Mexico from its Travel Alert list to the list of countries deemed dangerous enough for a Travel Warning status was not related to the death of two U.S. citizens on March 13 as they left a children’s birthday party in the violence-ridden city of Ciudad Juarez.

The official told it was a “coincidence” that the status change was announced on the Sunday following the killings and that the change was already ready for launch as early as March 8.
