Afireworks market lies in ruins a day after an explosion at the San Pablito Market in Tultepec, on the outskirts of Mexico City. Attention on Wednesday focused on apparent lax security that allowed vendors to display dangerous wares in passageways between stalls. Health Secretary Cesar Gomez Monge of the state of Mexico said another victim died in a hospital, raising the fatal toll to 33. About 45 people remained hospitalized; five are fighting for their lives, he added. Ten of the injured were minors, including one girl with burns over 90 percent of her body.
