Mexico pipeline blast kills 66: Army, police to guard pipelines

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has ordered to shut down many petrol pipelines.

    The Mexican government has sent the police and the army to guard petrol pipelines. In addition, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has ordered many of them to shut down because petrol was being pilfered by gangs and corrupt officials.
