Rescue workers carry a stretcher with the body of the 36th victim at the site of an explosion at the headquarters of state-owned oil giant Pemex in Mexico City February 3, 2013. The death toll from the explosion at Pemex reached 36 after another body was recovered from the rubble on Sunday, according to local media. The disaster on Thursday struck two months into Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto's presidency, just as Congress was preparing to discuss his plans to open up the state-run energy industry to more private investment.
