Earlier on Sunday, the bodies of six coal miners killed in the methane gas explosion in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province were recovered. Nasir Khan, director general of the Provincial Disaster Management Authority, said that the explosion occurred at a depth of one thousand feet in the Marwar area near the Afghanistan border. He said that eight workers were on duty at the time of the blast and it is believed that the mine collapsed due to the filling of methane gas. Khan said, “A laborer who went down to save his colleagues died due to methane gas.” Subsequently, search and rescue operations were started and six bodies were taken out of the mine. Campaign is on to search for other dead bodies. ”
