At least eight people have been killed in a fire bomb attack on a bar in the Mexican tourist town of Cancun.

Local reports said the attack was carried out by a drug cartel which was trying to extort protection money from the bar owner.

The attack has heightened fears that drug-related violence is spreading to tourist towns.
