A pipeline has exploded in Mexico which has led to the deaths of 66 people.

The separation and counting burned masses of corpses in central Mexico on Saturday after a massive fireball erupted at an illegal pipeline tap.
Over 85 other people on Saturday were listed as missing.

The leak was caused by an illegal pipeline tap in the small town of Tlahuelilpan, about 100 kilometres north of Mexico City, according to state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex.

Lopez Obrador after taking office Dec. 1, deployed 3,200 marines to guard pipelines and refineries.
