A travel warning has been issued for Playa del Carmen, Mexico, following an unnamed threat that has closed the U.S. Embassy there.

State and local police said the attack occurred late Sunday at the “Las Virginias” bar in a seedy area relatively far from the beachside tourist zone. Six men were found shot to death in the bar, and another died at a local hospital.
