Mine Collapse Kills 2

KIEV () -- A layer of rock collapsed in a mine in eastern Ukraine on Tuesday, killing two workers in the country's second fatal mining accident in two days.


Three laborers were clearing out a shaft in the Rodina mine in the Luhansk region when the rock came down. The surviving miner was seriously injured, said a duty officer for the civilian defense headquarters.


The cause of the collapse was unclear. A government commission was established to investigate, the officer said.
