Yang Dongliang, head of the State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS), said the number of deaths had increased and that rescuers were looking for the three trapped miners, the official Xinhua news agency reported.


The explosion occurred late Wednesday at Xiaojiawan mine in southwest China’s Sichuan province and marked the latest in a string of fatal incidents for an industry known for poor safety. The death toll matches that from a blast at a mine in November last year in southwestern Yunnan province.
