A ferry has been struck by an explosion in Mexico, reportedly injuring around a dozen people who were on board.

The ferry, owned by Barcos Caribe, was docked at the tourist resort town of Playa del Carmen when one of the sides appeared to explode.

Images from the resort show the damage done to the side of the ferry, and people with injuries to their arms and legs.

Initial local reports indicate the blast may have been caused by a gas leak or an engine failure.

Contacto Urbano reports the ferry company has links to the former Governor Roberto Borge Angulo.
