Owners of Mexican Day-Care Center Charged in Fire

Federal prosecutors in Mexico say they have
obtained nine arrest warrants for the owners and legal
representatives of a day care center where a fire killed 48
children.

The attorney general's office says the suspects, including one
health sector official, face charges of improper use of authority.
Some are also charged with negligent injury and negligent homicide.

State prosecutors in the northern state of Sonora previously
reported charges against 18 people in the June 5 fire. But the
federal office said Saturday that the number is 14, without
explaining the difference.

Witnesses say there was only one working exit and insufficient
safety precautions at the day care center in Hermosillo, the Sonora
state capital.
