Latest update : 2011-01-26

A methane gas explosion in a Colombian mine killed four miners and trapped thirteen others Wednesday. Six people were killed in a similar accident in the same mine in October 2010.

AFP - Four miners were killed and 13 trapped after an explosion in a coal mine in northeastern Colombia, the mayor of the town of Sardinata said Wednesday. 

Another six persons were injured and hospitalized, according to Mayor Yamile Rangel, who had originally said 30 miners were trapped.
 
"Officially we have four persons dead and six injured," she told AFP. "There are 13 still trapped in the mine."
 
The explosion was apparently caused by an accumulation of methane gas, Rangel said.
