Following the mass shootings in the United States, the governments of Uruguay and Venezuela are warning against travelling to the U.S.

In the wake of Saturday’s deadly attacks in El Paso and Dayton, two Latin American countries are warning their citizens about the dangers of visiting the United States.

Uruguay and Venezuela issued travel advisories Monday.

Uruguay’s foreign ministry urged citizens travelling to the U.S. to take extreme precautions.

Venezuela’s foreign ministry suggested its citizens should postpone travel to the U.S. due to violence and indiscriminate crimes.
