External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted that all Indians are safe in Mexico, as the nation was rocked by powerful 7.1-magnitude earthquake that has so far claimed over 225 lives. She cited her conversation with Indian Ambassador to Mexico to make this claim.
Swaraj, who is attending the 72nd annual session of the UN General Assembly, said India stands with Mexico in this hour of grief. “My deepest condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives in the second earthquake in Mexico,” she said. At least 225 people were killed when a powerful 7.1- magnitude earthquake struck Mexico, including 21 children crushed beneath an elementary school that was reduced to rubble.
