UW-Eau Claire cancels trips to Mexico


EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is among schools canceling student trips to Mexico because of continuing violence there.

The university's Center for Service Learning has canceled a spring break trip to Durango, Mexico. And the Center for International Education has canceled a summer program in Monterrey, Mexico. Both cities are included in the U.S. State Department's travel advisories.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton leads a team of Obama administration Cabinet officers to talks Tuesday aimed at helping Mexico get control of its drug cartels and related violence.
