A helicopter carrying senior officials has crashed while they assessed damage from Friday's earthquake in Mexico, killing at least 14 including a baby.

Mexico's interior minister and the governor of the south-west Oaxaca state were on board, but neither was hurt.

The aircraft's pilot lost control as it was coming in to land, Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete said.

The 7.2-magnitude quake's epicentre was in Oaxaca but it shook buildings in Mexico City, 350km away.

No deaths have been reported from the earthquake itself.
