Oil pipeline blast kills 27 in Mexico

[Updated at 10:51 p.m.] The death toll in Sunday morning's oil pipeline explosion in central Mexico has risen to 27, a state-run Mexican news agency said.

[Initial post] At least 14 people were killed and 33 injured after an oil pipeline exploded Sunday morning in central Mexico, officials said.

The cause of the explosion in San Martin Texmelucan, in Puebla state, was under investigation, but preliminary reports pointed to the illegal extraction of oil from the pipe, said Laura Gursa, coordinator for civil protection in Puebla.

    Where's Ted Turner's boys (CNN) with their slander of Assange?
    Are they afraid the public is supporting Assange?
    If they want a pedophile, go after the Pope, he's been hiding the rIch and elites' pedophilia for years.

    Why do so many idiots make so many idiotic posts that have NOTHING to with the news story? Because they are idiots? You can't blame a dog for acting like a dog or an idiot for being an idiot.
