Did you hear the interview on Morning Edition with Susan Thill of St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin?
We talked to her yesterday and she told us about how she and her husband Al were attacked by carjackers last week while driving in northern Mexico.
Al Thill was shot, then treated in a Mexican hospital. The two of them are safely back home now, but the attackers made off with their car and everything in it. And that same day, another American -- a school board member from California -- was shot and killed in the very same Mexican State of Durango.
That area of Mexico is the subject of a State Department Travel Alert. MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Ted Coley, the managing director of Overseas Citizens Services at the State Department.
