MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico's interior minister says 25 people have died in an office building explosion at the state oil company headquarters.

Miguel Angel Osorio Chong says the dead are 17 women and eight men, and another 101 were injured.

Osorio Chong spoke late Thursday to the media after the afternoon explosion, which hit the basement and first two floors of a building next to the iconic 51-story tower of Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex. He did not provide a cause for the blast.
