Uruguay issued a warning to its citizens early this week about traveling to the U.S. after two mass shootings killed more than 30 people. The Latin American country also cited three cities citizens should avoid:

Albuquerque, Detroit and Baltimore. Uruguay's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the three cities are among the 20 most dangerous in the world and cited CEOWORLD magazine at its source. Albuquerque has garnered national attention in recent years over its high auto theft rates and violent shootings.

Uruguay advised its citizens to avoid U.S. theme parks, shopping centers, art festivals, religious activities and sporting events.

All train lines were blocked between Clapham Junction and London Victoria as fire broke out on the tracks on Wednesday morning. Two of the capital's busiest stations are expected to be hit by delays and cancellations until mid-afternoon.

Southern Rail, which runs major commuter routes from areas such as Brighton and Portsmouth, said services running to or from Clapham Junction or Victoria could be cancelled or delayed until  2:30pm. The Gatwick Express service is also disrupted.

President Trump will visit Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso in an attempt to deliver a message of national unity and healing to two cities scarred by mass shootings over the weekend and where many grieving residents hold him responsible for inflaming the country's racial divisions.

The president stands accused of embracing hateful rhetoric and dodging calls for gun control, prompting divided feelings in both places about whether his arrival will provide comfort or incite rancor.
