Death toll rises to 24 after huge explosion rocks petrochemical factory in Mexico sending toxic cloud into the sky
The blast hit the Pemex plant in Coatzacoalcos in Veracruz state
The number of dead has risen from three to 24 and may go up again
19 people remain hospitalized, with 13 of them in serious condition
More than 2,000 evacuated after the explosion was felt six miles away
Pemex director said blast caused by a leak of an as-yet unknown origin

A massive explosion has rocked a petrochemical plant in Mexico, killing 24 workers, injuring 136 and sending a cloud of toxic fumes into the sky.

State Oil Company Pemex raised the toll late on Thursday from the 13 fatalities previously known and said eight workers remained missing.

It also said 19 people remained hospitalized, with 13 of them in serious condition.

In a statement, the company said 12 of the bodies had been identified and eight of them delivered to family members.

The plant, on the Gulf of Mexico coast, produces vinyl chloride, a hazardous chemical used in the manufacture of PVC pipes.

The blast on Wednesday afternoon, caused by an unknown leak, could be heard and felt six miles away and sent a huge toxin-filled cloud into the air.
