Yet another deadly mine accident in China

Just five days after 29 workers were killed in a mine explosion in China, a new deadly accident has hit the country.

Four men have been killed and 57 are missing after a blast that followed a small earthquake in the country’s Henan province.

Two workers were brought out alive from the state-owned mine.

At another state-owned colliery at Hengyang in Hunan province last weekend, only six workers survived an explosion.

China’s mines are described as the most dangerous in the world, with 2,433 workers dying in accidents last year alone.
