NBC's Mark Potter and CBS' Bill Whitaker covered the frightening Mexican narcoviolence Wednesday. Now ABC's Jim Avila follows up as the State Department issued a warning about spring break. Normally 100,000-or-so college students travel south of the border for their annual festival of drunken debauchery and girls gone wild. This time there is "an official travel alert that bystanders have been injured or killed" in the trafficking cartels' crossfire. The State Department is not just talking about Juarez and Tijuana, it even worries about gunfire in Cancun and Acapulco. ABC's Avila quoted statistics from the office of Mexico's Attorney General that "prove innocent tourists are rarely harmed."
