The Director of the Pakistan offices for the elimination of consequences of natural disasters in a Meager Hahn reported on the explosion of methane in coal deposits Mararska, which killed 16 miners. On Saturday night, two unconscious workers were rescued and bodies of two miners were recovered.

"We are trying our best to recover bodies but it will take time as majority are buried very deep", Shahwani said.

"We have recovered all the 16 bodies from the rubble caused by the collapse in the coal mine", Mr. Atique said.

Emergency services were able to rescue nine others, who were brought to nearby hospitals.

Details about what led to the explosion weren't immediately available.


The rescue operation continued till Sunday morning in which bodies of five more labourers were found from second damaged of the coalmine. However, they faced difficulties as the mouth of the mine had been blocked by a boulder after the blast.

The members of Mines Labour Federation protested the deaths of coal miners in Sooranj and Marwaarh, demanding the provincial government to arrange safety measures in order to prevent such incidents. At least 15 more miners were injured in the two incidents.

According to local media, about 25 people were in the mine when the explosion occurred. Two labourers died in a landslide on Saturday in another mine in Surrang coalfields.

"The collapse apparently took place because of a gas explosion and the miners working at that time were trapped inside".
