Mexico hotel blast kills up to 7 people
An explosion at a resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico left as many as seven people dead Sunday, authorities said. The suspected gas explosion killed five Canadian tourists and two Mexican staff members while injuring 17 other people, the Agence France-Presse said. The accident was likely caused by a buildup of naturally occurring gas that somehow ignited, CNN said. Authorities have ruled out a premeditated attack as the cause.
