MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico City officials say a gas tank truck has exploded outside a maternity and children's hospital, collapsing part of it and injuring dozens of people.

Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera tells the Televisa network that at least 54 people are injured, 22 of them children. But he says there are no reports of deaths.

Thursday's explosion sent a column of smoke billowing over the area in western Mexico City.
