Colombian broadcaster La FM reported on Friday that an explosion at a coal mine in northeastern Colombia has left six people killed and three others trapped as rescue works are underway. According to the report, the six coal mine workers were preliminary confirmed to have died from suffocation, while works are underway to rescue three other workers. The blast reportedly occurred on Friday morning, possibly due to accumulation of excess methane in the mine.

In April, in the same region of the country, six miners died in another coal mine that did not have security measures approved by the authorities.
