Four killed in Vietnam coal mine collapse: report

TEHRAN, Aug. 27 (MNA) – Four people have been killed in a collapse in a coal mine in Vietnam's mining center of Quang Ninh, local media reported.

The accident happened late on Saturday at a mine operated by Vang Danh Coal Company, a unit of Vietnam's state coal miner Vinacomin, Reuters reported citing the state-run Thanh Nien newspaper on Sunday.

A rescue team pulled out the bodies of four miners, it said.

The newspaper did not give a reason for the collapse. In March a similar accident happened at a Vang Danh-operated mine but no one was killed.
