3 Miners Crushed

MOSCOW -- A rock collapse at a coal mine in Northern Russia killed three miners and wounded two Wednesday, news reports said.

The accident at the Komsomolskaya mine in Vorkuta occurred at a depth of almost 1,000 meters, Interfax reported, citing mine officials.

Russian mines suffer frequent accidents due to poor equipment and lax safety standards.
