India's Supreme Court slams authorities for failure to pull out 15 workers trapped for 21 days in a flooded coal mine in remote Meghalaya state. Critics say lessons were not learnt from successful Thai cave operation.
The explosion occurred due to the accumulation of methane gas inside the coal mine in Marwaarh, 45 kilometres east of Quetta, which is the capital of Balochistan province, officials said.
Emergency services reported eight dead, but the miners' union said that 11 had died after a methane explosion.
Coal mine blast caused by methane gas kills one worker, while at least 9 are still missing in Ukraine.
