Gas Suffocation in Coal Mine Kills 2 Afghan Miners in Samangan

The provincial officials said two mine workers died, and 35 others were poisoned due to gas suffocation in Samangan province of Afghanistan.

Mohammad Nasim Khybershekan, the district governor of Dara-e-Suf Bala, Samangan province, has confirmed that the incident occurred on Saturday in the Merak Dahane mine in Dara-e- Suf Bala district.

He pointed out that the main reason for the death and suffocation of mine workers was non-professional mining in the area.

Meanwhile, the provincial health officials said that the suffocated people were transferred to a medical hospital for treatment.

Earlier on Saturday, a coalminer lost his life, and another went unconscious due to gas suffocation in a coal mine in the Baghlan province of Afghanistan.

A toxic gas leaked as workers worked in a coal mine in the Tala-o-Barfak district. As a result, one miner was killed, and another fainted.

According to officials, unsafe mining practices, poor equipment, and unskilled workers are the factors for mining causalities.
