Mexico hotel blast kills Canadian tourists

At least five Canadian tourists and two hotel staff have been killed in a suspected gas explosion at a luxury hotel on Mexico’s Maya Riviera. At least 15 others have been injured. The blast, believed to have been caused by a build-up of natural gas, blew out windows at the 676-room Grand Riviera Princess hotel in Playa del Carmen.

Mainly North American tourists are staying at the hotel complex, which is located about 90km from Cancun on the Caribbean coast.

Two Canadians are reported to be in a critical condition. Others, including two US citizens and Mexican workers at the hotel, are said to be less seriously injured.

The floor of the hotel was blasted through the ceiling by the force of the explosion, blowing out windows and scattering debris over a wide area.
