Ten dead after Mexico church roof collapse

At least 10 people have been killed after a church roof collapsed in northern Mexico, local officials say, the BBC reports.

Forty-nine people were taken to hospital after the collapse at Santa Cruz church in the coastal city of Ciudad Madero in Tamaulipas state.

At least two children are reported to be among those killed.

Around 100 people were attending Mass at the time, police said. Some reports suggested a baptism ceremony was being held there.

Dozens of people were left trapped inside the church following the incident. Images on social media showed the church building in ruins as people crowded around the rubble, desperately searching for those who were missing.
