The U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez has been closed for an undetermined time after receiving a credible bomb threat. Earlier reports did not specify the nature of the threat.
The threat, received Thursday just days after a car bomb killed four people in Juárez in a fresh escalation of violence, led authorities to immediately send personnel home.
