Two coal mines collapse in Pakistan, 23 killed

At least 23 miners were killed and nine others injured in explosions at two coal mines in Pakistan's Balochistan province, an official said on Sunday.

Senior government official Javed Anwar said eleven coal miners were also missing after Saturday's incident in Marghat village in the Baluchistan province.

Shahwani said 25 workers were inside the mine when the explosion occurred, adding that all the injured miners had been rescued and taken to the hospital.

The mines are in an area where such accidents are common because of poor enforcement of safety regulations.
