US government workers in Monterrey, Mexico,
told to send children home
Children of U.S. government workers in Monterrey will have to leave the city for safety reasons starting Sept. 10, the State Department said today in an e-mailed update of its travel advisory for Mexico. The change in policy for the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey came after a review prompted by a shooting in front of the American Foundation School and by the "high incidence" of kidnappings in the Monterrey area, the U.S. said. The shooting near the school left two security guards dead.
