Coalmine explosion in China’s Linfen City kills 15, injures more than 20 others, including children

The explosion occurred at the dormitory area of Liugou Coal Mine of Yicheng County,  Linfen City, north China’s Shanxi Province, at about 3:40 a.m. local time on Saturday, a report said.

The officials, however, first lied about where the blast had occurred, but later admitted that it was the dormitory area, where a number of children are believed to be among the victims.

The mine is owned by the Yangquan Coal Industry (Group) Co. Ltd, whose senior official said the casualty number could further rise, according to the report.
