November 1, 2021

An explosion on a Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) operated pipeline killed one person and injured 15 others on October 31. The incident occurred in the state of Puebla in Mexico and is reported to have happened after suspected fuel thieves breached the pipe.

Following the explosion, the Puebla state government said that the death toll could have been much greater if it had not evacuated the local area following reports of a gas leak from the pipeline.
