BEJING – A gas explosion today killed at least 21 workers and 16 others were trapped at a coal mine in central China, authorities told state-run media.
Rescuers have retrieved 20 bodies so far, the official Xinhua news agency reported. The 16 trapped miners have been located but rescuers have to clear coal dust from the shaft in order to reach them. (CNN)
