Seven people, including two Canadians, were killed and another eight Canadians were injured in a natural gas explosion at a Mexican resort on Sunday. The explosion happened at the Grand Riviera Princess Hotel in Playa del Carmen, just south of Cancun. The attorney general for the state of Quintana Roo said the explosion may have been caused by a buildup of natural gas from the swamp. Sixty mroe Canadians were staying at the hotel, a popular holiday destination, said a Westjet representative.
