  • Death toll from coal mine accidents climbs to 23

"23 miners were killed and another 11 were injured due to unrelated methane explosions at two mines in Pakistan", - stated in the message.

Attaullah Khan, Pakistan's director of disaster management, on May 5 said a blast caused by a buildup of methane gas in the Marwar coalfields in Balochistan Province led to the collapse of a mine, trapping many workers.

The poor safety conditions in the Pakistani mines makes them prone to accidents.

Coal mining on its own is a risky job but in Pakistan, the odds against the miners have a higher percentage as regulations are not implemented.
