36 killed in Mexico fireworks market blast

Mexico City: At least 36 people were killed when several explosions ripped through a fireworks market in Mexico, authorities said.

Public prosecutor Alejandro Gomez said 31 people died at the scene of the tragic incident that took place on Tuesday in Tultepec and five others later died in hospitals, Efe news reported.

Of the victims, only two - a man and a 10-year-old girl - have been identified.

Government official Jose Manzur told the local media that "in many cases, bodies are burned", which makes it difficult to identify them.

The number of injured was put at 72 -- 37 men, 25 women and 10 minors. They were transferred to hospitals near the fireworks market in San Pablito where there were six explosions just minutes before 3 p.m.

According to a witness, "a rocket was lit and it (headed) to where there was a lot of fireworks".

Mexico State Governor Eruviel Avila said three children who have suffered serious burns will be transferred to a hospital in Texas in the US.
