Death toll from Mexico pipeline blast stands at 100

Mexico City, Mexico, Jan 25 - Forensic experts register the area after the explosion of a clandestine outlet in a Pemex pipeline, in Tlahuililpan, Hidalgo. The number of fatalities in Mexico's tragic pipeline explosion has climbed to 100, the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) said. The death toll climbed after four of the injured in Friday's blast in the central Mexican town of Tlahuelilpan, Hidalgo, died of their wounds late Thursday. Authorities said that the pipeline leakage was illegally tapped by fuel thieves, a problem that cost the country some 3 billion U.S. dollars last year. Photo courtesy Jorge Dan Lopez
