Flood in Chinese Coal Mine Traps 60


A coal mine flood in northeastern China early Sunday has trapped more than 60 miners.

The official Xinhua news agency said the flooded mine is in the city of Jiaohe in Jilin province.

No other details were immediately available.

China's mines are the most dangerous in the world, with more than 5,000 miners dying each year in explosions, flooding and collapses.
