MEXICO CITY - The US consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's most violent drug war city, warned on Friday that cartels may be seeking US targets in a possible escalation of violence.

The recent capture of cartel members in the area by Mexican authorities may prompt retaliation and a potential increase in violence in the Chihuahua-state city, which is across the border from El Paso, Texas, the consulate said in a statement.

"Information has come to light that suggests a cartel may be targeting the US Consulate in Ciudad Juarez or US Ports of Entry," it said.

Cartels have in the past used car bombs in attacks and US citizens should be vigilant, the statement said.
