Mexico fireworks market explosion leaves 35 dead

At least 35 people were killed and dozens more were injured in a massive series of explosions Tuesday at this market north of Mexico City, officials said.
The powerful, deadly blasts sent huge plumes of smoke billowing into the sky and shook the ground in neighboring towns.
The bodies of 28 people who died have been identified and returned to their relatives. Authorities say it could be another few days before they can determine the identities of the other victims.
The governor of the state of Mexico, Eruviel Ávila Villegas, instructed his administration to assist in the costs of funerals.
