Mexico: 29 killed in Tultepec fireworks market explosion

At least 29 people have been killed and 70 more injured in an explosion that tore through a fireworks market in Tultepec, outside of Mexico City, Tuesday.
Following the incident, plumes of smoke were seen billowing from the charred ground and the smouldering market stalls.
Eruviel Avila, State of Mexico Governor, where Tultepec is located, stated that 29 people have been killed and that some 13 children have suffered burns to over 90 percent of their bodies and were now being send to the US city of Galveston, Texas, for treatment.
The blast at the San Pablito Market was the third major explosion in the last years. In 2005, a fire ravaged through the San Pablito Market shortly before Mexico's Independence Day. In 2006, a fire wrecked hundreds of fireworks stands.
