Pakistan: 10 miners trapped in Balochistan coal mine collapse

AIR
In Pakistan, at least 10 miners remain trapped more than a kilometre underground after a fire started by an electrical short circuit in a coal mine in Balochistan province.

Rescue efforts were hampered by the fire spreading poisonous Carbon Monoxide gas inside the mine, some 35 kilometres east of Quetta, the capital of oil and mineral-rich province.

Abdullah Shahwani, a top official for the industry in the province, said 11 miners were working yesterday around 4,000 feet underground when the accident happened. He told AFP news agency that fire erupted due to a cable short circuit, causing the spread of poisonous gas. He said, one miner has been rescued but 10 remain trapped inside.
