Mexico pipeline explosion kills and injures dozens

More than 70 people have been killed after an explosion at an oil pipeline in Tlahuelilpan, Mexico.

Officials say dozens of people had been filling up containers from an illegal pipeline tap when fire broke out on Friday evening.

There have been explosions at illegal taps before.

The government is attempting to prevent fuel theft but some argue the strategy has led to fuel shortages.
