Car explodes next to a major Mexican television network office

MEXICO CITY (AP) - A major Mexican television network says a car
has exploded in front of its offices in a northern state where
officials are investigating the massacre of 72 Central and South
American migrants.
The Televisa network reports that the explosion happened early
Friday in front of its offices in the capital of Tamaulipas, the
same state where the bodies were found earlier this week on a ranch
believed to be operated by drug traffickers.
Televisa says that none of its employees was injured, but the
explosion damaged the building and knocked out its signal in the
city. It was felt for blocks.
Tamaulipas has become one of Mexico's most violent battlegrounds
for drug cartels fighting over territory.
