    Three days after an earthquake killed at least 286 people, Mexican rescuers are refusing to give up hope of finding survivors.

    That rescue operation has been extended, and foreign crews are helping sift through the rubble.

    More than 50 buildings collapsed in the capital when Tuesday's 7.1 magnitude quake struck.
