State Department warns against regions in Namibia

Citing "lethal assaults on foreign visitors," the State Department urged U.S. travelers in Namibia to stay away from the Trans-Caprivi Highway in the north because fighting in Angola has spilled across the border.

The department previously said the Okavango and Caprivi regions in northern Namibia should be avoided.

Separately, the State Department removed Y2K-related travel warnings for Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldavia.
