Asia India: Almost a month after the Dec. 6 razing of a mosque by Hindu extremists in the northern city of Ayodhya, calm has returned to India though tensions remain high, according to news reports. Travelers should exercise caution and avoid all demonstrations. More than 1,000 people died during a week of violence after the incident, and curfews were imposed in 135 of India's cities, including Bombay, Calcutta and Delhi. Travelers should contact the Consular section of the American Embassy in Delhi or the Consulate General in Bombay, Calcutta or Madras for current information on security conditions.

The U.S. State Department issued a new state-by-state warning for travelers to Mexico that details the more violent areas of the country but also points out popular places such as Cabo San Lucas and Mexico City where travel advisories aren't in effect. The warning announced Wednesday gives specific cities and states, with a map of the country, where gun battles and drug trafficking violence are likely to occur. Mexican tourism has been under a cloud for the last six years since gruesome killings related to drug cartels scared off visitors to many parts of the country.

Caution was the mode of operation Monday at practice, and if history is a proper guide, that's the way it should be around Clippers headquarters. Rookie shooting guard Eric Gordon, who has started to emerge in a big way since Cuttino Mobley was traded to the New York Knicks, came out of the Miami game late in the third quarter Saturday and did not return. A day later, he thought his sore right hamstring was better, but Gordon asked to come out of practice Monday after playing half-court.

When a disappointed David Beckham stalked out of the stadium in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, after England's loss to Portugal during last summer's soccer World Cup, he was wearing a scowl.
