Six Miners Lost Their Lives in Samangan

AIBAK CITY – At least six miners have died after they were exposed to methane gas inside a coal mine in northern Samangan province on Tuesday.
According to Ahmad Ali Hassani, district governor of Dara Souf Bala, the miners lost their lives, while they were busy on coal extraction in Chang Aab region, Dara Soup Bala district.
They were residents of Daikundi province and their bodies have been submitted to their families, Hassani added.
Miners in Afghanistan are exposed to severe risks as precautionary measures for them are almost non-existent. Neither the investors nor the workers have enough information or motivation regarding such measures.
