Pak­istan mine deaths rise

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

THE death toll from a coal mine col­lapse in Pak­istan has risen to 24 with lit­tle hope that sur­vivors will be found among an­other two dozen peo­ple still miss­ing. ‘‘ We have re­cov­ered 24 bod­ies – 24 min­ers are still trapped in­side,’’ the sec­re­tary of mines and min­er­als for the in­sur­gency-torn Baluchis­tan prov­ince, where the ac­ci­dent took place, said. ‘‘ We are try­ing our best to res­cue them, but it will be a mir­a­cle if they sur­vive,’’ Mush­taq Raisani added.
