Mexican official: US travel warning 'ridiculous'

• Associated Press

Interior Department Alejandro Poire says million of tourists visit Mexico without incident.

Poire told a news conference Tuesday that he believes "these alerts overstate or misstate the standards and security situation that exists in our country."

The State Department issued an updated travel warning Feb. 8 urging travelers to "defer nonessential travel" to 14 of Mexico's 31 states due to drug-related violence that has cost more than 47,500 lives since 2006.
