BBC

At least nine workers have died and nearly two dozen are feared trapped in a coal mine which has collapsed in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand.

The incident happened late in the evening on Thursday at a government-owned mine in Godda district.

Efforts are continuing to reach the miners, who are believed to be still trapped, officials told BBC Hindi.

Jharkhand has some of India’s biggest coal mines, but safety standards are not always strictly followed.
