Mexico Travel Warning

MEXICO CITY (AP) - The U.S. State Department recommends
Americans avoid travel to all or parts of 14 of 31 Mexican states
in the widest travel advisory since Mexico stepped up its drug war
in 2006.
      The state department advises against any nonessential travel to
Chihuahua, Coahuila and Tamaulipas, all bordering the U.S, and the central state of
Durango. It advises caution in three other border states, as well
as states in central and western Mexico where cartels have been
warring.
      The advisory this week said U.S. citizens have been victims of
drug violence, including killings, kidnappings and carjackings.
      The previous warning in April 2011 recommended avoiding travel
in just two states, Tamaulipas and Michoacan, and
parts of eight others.
