Two miners dead, two missing in Hebei colliery blasts

TWO miners were dead and another two were still missing after explosions ripped through a coal mine in north China's Hebei Province, local rescue officials said early today.

The accident took place at about 6 a.m. at two shafts of the Jinming Coal Mine in Wu'an City when 28 miners were working underground, the rescue headquarters said after further verification.

Fourteen miners managed to get out themselves and another 10 were rescued yesterday evening, rescuers said.

More than 200 rescuers were working in turns to break through the collapsed tunnel to search for the missing workers.

The mine has legal production permits, but its operation was suspended pending a restructuring of small coal mine companies.
