Texas plant blast: Criminal probe opened three weeks on


Texas authorities have launched a criminal probe into a deadly explosion at a fertiliser plant in April.

The incident "severely impacted" the community in the town of West, a law enforcement official said.

The 17 April explosion at West Fertilizer Company killed 14 people, wounded 200, and caused a tremor as powerful as a small earthquake.

Mark Mardell reports from Washington.
