Mexico's Pemex Evacuates Offices after Threat

change text size

MEXICO CITY - A threat received by Mexican state oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos on Tuesay was a false alarm, it said. It had earlier evacuated its Mexico City headquarters.

Following an inspection of the offices Pemex said the threat was a false alarm. A spokesman didn't give any details.

The company activated a "security protocol" after receiving the threat, Pemex said on the state-controlled company's verified, usual Twitter account. It didn't specify the nature of the threat.

In January, 38 people were killed in an explosion in a building near Pelmet's 48-story headquarters. It was caused by methane, authorities said but haven't concluded how the gas accumulated in the building.
