Colombia: 9 dead and 6 missing from coal mine explosion

 Nine dead and six missing are the culmination of a gas explosion in a Colombian coal mine last week.

Nine workers have been found dead and six others are still missing after an explosion at a coal mine in northern Colombia earlier this week , according to the National Agency for Mines and Mines (Agencia Nacional de Minería, ANM), which is conducting an investigation.

After the identification of two other bodies, "we have a report of nine dead and six missing workers" , ANM clarified in its announcement.

On Monday morning, an explosion apparently due to a concentration of gas caused a fire in the coal mine, near the city of Soulia, in the prefecture of Northern Santander, which borders Venezuela.

"About 90% of the mine collapsed," which made the work of rescue teams "complicated," said John Olivares, secretary of mines and mines in North Santander.

Yesterday Saturday, more than 70 members of rescue teams continued the search inside the mine.

The country with the fourth largest economy in Latin America recorded 148 deaths due to accidents in mines and mines in 2021. Minerals and oil exports are the main in Colombia.
