Magnitude-6.1 aftershock rocks Mexico days after deadly quake


National Civil Protection Coordinator Luis Felipe Puente said in his latest preliminary report on fatalities on Friday that the number killed in Mexico City from Tuesday's powerful temblor had increased from 148 to 154, Efe news reported.

Half of the cupola of an historic church in Mexico City has fallen after sustaining damage during the magnitude 7.1 quake that hit central Mexico this week.

Four persons died as a result of a magnitude-6.1 aftershock that caused alarm in Mexico on Saturday, four days after a magnitude-7.1 quake left at least 305 dead.

A magnitude 5.9 quake struck off the Mexican west coast on Sunday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

Puente said that because of protocol, the work of digging through the rubble was suspended for a brief period of time in order to study the state of the structures after the new quake, which caused the collapse of a bridge originally damaged in the September 7 temblor.

"It feels lifeless", said Mariana Aguilar, 27, a hostess at a bar and restaurant who stood waiting for guests yet to arrive.

A strong new natural disaster rocked southern Mexico on Sunday, a day after facing another deadly aftershock.
