Shenyang (China), April 13 (Xinhua) At least 14 miners were killed and two injured in a coal mine gas explosion in Huludao city of China’s Liaoning province, officials said Sunday. The accident took place at 10.15 a.m. Saturday at the No. 3 coal mine of Shaguotun village in Nanpiao district, the publicity department of the Huludao City Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) told Xinhua.
Huludao is more than 300 km from Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province.
Two people were missing after the blast at the private coalmine. The rescue operation was under way.
