NUEVO LAREDO - The U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo is alerting U.S. citizens about an increase of violence across the border.

In a new release they said in the past week there have been at least 8 murders and 5 arson attacks on local residences.

There was also a series of gun battles between cartels that included three grenade explosions.

Officials say the increased violence is likely the result of rival gangs fighting for control of the city.
