19 dead in east China mining accident
BEIJING (AFP) - Nineteen miners have been confirmed dead in east China following a mining accident earlier this month that trapped 22 people, state media reported on Monday (Oct 29).
The tunnel where the miners were working was blocked at both ends by coal after pressure caused rocks to fracture and break on Oct 20, the official Xinhua news agency said.
Only one miner has been rescued so far.
