Four die in Mexico oil rig fire

Four people have been killed and at least 16 injured in a massive oil rig blaze in the Gulf of Mexico.

A ball of flame engulfed the rig, forcing workers to jump into the sea.

Helicopters helped evacuate 300 staff to the nearby city of Ciudad del Carmen.

Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), the state-owned oil company that runs the rig, said there was no evidence yet of a major oil spill.
