MOSCOW (Sputnik) - At least six people have died as a result of an explosion in a coal mine in Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan, a national TV channel reported citing local officials.
Miners were working at a depth of over 450 meters (1,476 feet), when a powerful explosion occurred, caused by the accumulation of methane.
A local broadcaster said that miners were blocked in the mine, since part of it collapsed.
When rescue workers got to the site of the explosion, six miners had already passed away, local health authorities said.
