    More than 200 die in Mexico earthquake

    A strong earthquake has struck central Mexico, killing more than 200 people and toppling dozens of buildings in the capital, Mexico City, BBC reports.

    President Enrique Peña Nieto told BBC that more than 20 children had died and 30 were missing after a school collapsed.
    The 7.1 magnitude quake also caused major damage in neighbouring states.

    The tremor struck shortly after many people had taken part in an earthquake drill, exactly 32 years after a quake killed thousands in Mexico City.

    The country is prone to earthquakes and earlier this month an 8.1 magnitude tremor in the south left at least 90 dead.
