image for Uruguay issues U.S. travel warning after mass shootings

Uruguay issued a travel alert for the United States on Monday, warning its citizens of “indiscriminate violence” and a rise in hate crimes after 34 people were killed in a series of mass shootings in Texas, Ohio, and California.

“The Foreign Ministry warns compatriots traveling to the United States to take precautions against the rise in indiscriminate violence, mostly due to hate crime, including racism and discrimination,” the ministry said in the travel alert, which was issued on Monday.

It also urged its citizens to avoid cities with high rates of crime, such as Detroit, Baltimore, and Albuquerque.

The travel warning follows a series of deadly shootings in the United States.

This followed a mass shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival in California a week earlier, killing 3 people and injuring more than a dozen others.

The U.S. has seen a rise in deadly mass shootings over the past decade: 7 of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in modern U.S. history have happened in the last 7 years.

The worst shooting happened in 2017, when a gunman opened fire on a music festival in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring more than 850 others. »
