Mexico – The number of people killed by a powerful earthquake off the southern coast of Mexico has risen to at least 61, officials say. A huge rescue operation is under way in the worst-hit states of Tabasco, Oaxaca and Chiapas where people are feared trapped under rubble. President Enrique Peña Nieto says at least 200 people have been injured. The 8.1-magnitude quake, which hit late on Thursday, was the strongest to hit the region in a century. One of the worst hit towns was Juchitán, in Oaxaca, where at least 17 deaths have been reported. The town hall and a number of other buildings were destroyed or badly damaged. At least one other person was killed in Guatemala, its president has said.
