A petrol tanker has exploded in Mexico City, killing at least 18 people and injuring dozens more.
Rescuers feared the death toll in the suburb of Ecatepec could rise, as they continued sifting through the charred remains of vehicles and homes on the northern edge of the metropolis.
Hundreds of emergency services personnel gathered at the scene, where a giant plume of smoke rose over the area after the explosion at around 5am local time.
