Dynamite Blast On Truck Kills 23 In Mexico

CNN, September 10, 2007

A truck carrying more than 25 tons of dynamite exploded Monday in northern Mexico, killing at least 23 people and injuring more than 140, a government spokesman said.


Notimax, Mexico’s official news agency, reported at least 30 people were killed in the blast at a factory near Monclova—about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Monterrey.


Video footage showed the burned-out, mangled shell of the truck and nearby cars damaged by the blast.
