9 people injured after explosion in main square of Mexico’s Pacific coast resort of Acapulco

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Nine people have been treated for wounds caused by an explosion in the main city square of Mexico’s Pacific coast resort of Acapulco. Prosecutors in the southern state of Guerrero did not specify Monday what caused the explosion on Sunday, but some of the injured had burns, suggesting a flammable device. One of the victims, a baby, was in serious condition. Acapulco, which was hit by Category 5 Hurricane Otis in October, has  long seen grisly violence. But usually that involves targeted attacks or small groups of bodies turning up in the streets. Mass indiscriminate attacks on passersby in town squares are still relatively rare in Mexico.
