Explosion hits Mexico rubbish dump

Residents struggle to rebuild their lives after a massive explosion.

    A massive explosion at a rubbish dump outside the Mexican capital of Mexico City has left hundreds of homes damaged and huge cracks in the ground.

    Officials say a build-up of methane gas under the waste caused the blast, but as  local and state officials governments argue over who is to blame, the poor who live in the area are struggling to rebuild.
