A strong earthquake has struck central Mexico, killing at least 93 people and toppling dozens of buildings in the capital, Mexico City, the BBC reports.
The capital's airport has suspended operations after the 7.1 magnitude quake, and buildings across the city have been evacuated.
People were feared trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings as rescue teams rushed to the hardest-hit areas.
Earlier this month, a strong 8.1 magnitude tremor left at least 90 dead.
The epicentre of the quake was next to Atencingo in Puebla state, about 120km (75 miles) from Mexico City, with a depth of 51km, the US Geological Survey said.
At least 54 people were killed in Morelos state alone, south of the capital, and 26 reported killed in Puebla state. Four people are confirmed dead in Mexico City with another nine in Mexico State.
