Mexico hotel explosion kills 7

PLAYA DE CARMEN, Mexico -- Seven people, including five Canadian tourists, were killed Sunday by a powerful explosion at a large resort hotel south of Cancun, authorities said. "Twelve other people, including two Canadians and Two Americans, were injured in the blast at the sprawling 676-room Grand Riviera Princess hotel In Playa del Carmen, on Mexico's Carribbean coast, said Francisco Alor, attorney general of Quintana Roo State, where the resort is located," the NY TImes said. "The blast occurred on the ground floor of one of a dozen or so buildings that make up the sprawling hotel, and left a crater a yard (meter) deep," MSNBC said.
