Classes suspended in 2 Mexico states after quake

By  | 

JUCHITAN, Mexico (AP) - Mexico's education secretary says schools will remain closed in two southern states that were hit by the magnitude 8.1 earthquake.

Aurelio Nuno says classes will be suspended in Oaxaca and Chiapas on Monday.

Nuno said Sunday on Twitter that he visited several educational facilities in Chiapas that had experienced "various levels of damage." He posted photos including one of a classroom whose exterior brick wall was cracked and buckled.

At least 90 people were killed across southern Mexico by the Thursday night earthquake.
