Mine hor­ror leaves 21 dead

Evening Times - - NEWS -

TWENTY-ONE coal min­ers were killed when a mine col­lapsed in north­ern China.

The dis­as­ter oc­curred on Sat­ur­day in Shenmu in Shaanxi prov­ince in the heart of the coun­try’s coal-min­ing belt.

The num­ber of fa­tal­i­ties re­ported in caveins, ex­plo­sions and other dis­as­ters in Chi­nese coal mines has fallen sharply re­cently, but the in­dus­try still is the world’s dead­li­est.
