At least 53 people have died in an arson attack at a casino in Mexico after masked gunmen burst inside and doused the building with petrol.
The Casino Royale in the Mexican city of Monterrey was raided by gunmen on Thursday afternoon.
Police believe the gang attempted to rob the casino before emptying containers of fuel and setting the premises on fire leaving people trapped inside.
Fire and rescue services said many patrons ran to hide from the attackers in toilets and died from suffocation as smoke engulfed the premises.
Overnight, paramedics and fire crews pulled dozens of bodies from the building through a hole in the wall.
Officals said they believed organised crime was behind the attack which is thought to be one of the deadliest since President Phillipe Calderon launched a crackdown on drug cartels in 2006.
