Mexico rules out terrorism, organised crime in ferry blast

12 March 2018

In the Mexican resort town, a blast that injured more than two dozen in February was not an act of terrorism or organised crime, the Mexico attorney general's office said yesterday.

The explosion injured at least 25 people, including U.S. tourists. It marked another blow to the reputation of Mexico's tourism industry. The country's soaring crime and long-running battle with drug cartels have increasingly disrupted resort towns.
