Six coalmine workers die of suffocation in Fata

Peshawar (Staff Report): At least six labourers were suffocated to death after trapping in a coal mine in Kala Khel area on Tuesday night.


According to sources, gas produced from the coals filled mine number 10 with gas when labourers were working inside, as a result six workers lost their lives. The deceased include Azizullah, Nisar, Kareemullah and Shah Syed.

Most coalmines in Pakistan are notorious for poor safety standards and facilities. Similar deadly accidents have occurred in the past.
