Deadly blast at Mexico fireworks market


A powerful chain-reaction explosion ripped through Mexico’s best-known fireworks market on the northern outskirts of the capital killing at least 29 people, injuring scores more and sending a huge plume of charcoal-gray smoke billowing into the sky. Video of the blast showed a dramatic staccato of rockets exploding in flashes of light, leveling the open-air San Pablito Market in Tultepec in Mexico State as it bustled with shoppers stocking up on fireworks to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. Vendors’ stands were reduced to piles of rubble, ash, and charred metal. It was the third devastating explosion and fire to ravage the market since 2005 and officials still have not said what caused this latest blast. (AP)
