Officials in southwestern Pakistan said Friday an explosion at a coal mine in Balochistan province has killed six miners.

Reuters reports the blast was triggered by “accumulating methane gas.”

Two miners were rescued from the mine before the blast, according to the Chinese news service Xinhua.

Many of the mines in Balochistan are Chinese supported.
