Gas Explosion In China

24 March 2003 , 08:231978
42 died and 30 are still missing after a gas explosion in a coal mine in north China's Shanxi Province.

Totally 87 miners were working underground in the Mengnanzhuang coal mine in Xiaoyi City early Saturday afternoon when the blast occurred.

Ventilation has been restored in the mine but searching is still tough due to much of it having caved in, said a source from the rescue team.

The Shanxi provincial government has ordered all coal mines to stop operation starting from Sunday, as this was the third gas explosion in this area.
