Number of victims in Mexico petrol explosion goes up to 71

The number of victims in the Mexico petrol pipeline explosion has now gone up to 71, with tens of others being injured.

The tragedy occurred on Friday evening, and it is thought the whole thing was started by thieves who had drilled a hole into the pipeline to steal fuel.

When the fuel started shooting up into the air, many ran to the opening carrying cans, in the hope of also benefiting from the leaking petrol.

It is being reported that the Police tried to stop people from getting close to the petrol, but they did not succeed because there were too many persons involved.

In Mexico, a few litres of petrol cost more than an average day’s wage.
