WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday urged caution over travel to Mexico due to an outbreak of swine flu and said the United States took the issue “very seriously.”

“We have put up on our website information and urging caution with those who are planning to travel,” Clinton told reporters. “We are taking this very seriously and working also with the World Health Organization and other countries to try to develop a strategy to prevent the spread of this form of swine flu,” she added.
