The Day - - WORLD & NATION -

Bei­jing — At least 19 min­ers were killed when a coal mine col­lapsed in north­ern China, the gov­ern­ment said to­day. Res­cuers were look­ing for two min­ers who still were miss­ing fol­low­ing the dis­as­ter Sat­ur­day in the north­ern city of Shenmu in Shaanxi prov­ince, the city gov­ern­ment said in a state­ment. An­other 66 min­ers were res­cued, the state­ment said. The num­ber of fa­tal­i­ties re­ported in cave-ins, ex­plo­sions and other dis­as­ters in Chi­nese coal mines has fallen sharply over the past decade but the in­dus­try still is the world’s dead­li­est.
