Quake topples Mexico City paralympic events

The magnitude 7.1 shock killed at least 226 people, nearly half of them in the capital and among them at least 22 school children.

The swimming and powerlifting events were due to start at the end of the month with 1,400 athletes, officials and staff involved and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) said that this was the first time it had been forced to postpone a major championship.
