Nine workers die in fire at Uralkali mine in Russia

Rescuers have found nine dead construction workers after a fire in a mine in Russia operated by potash maker Uralkali. The workers were trapped underground by smoke after a fire broke out in the mine in Solikamsk, some 1,500 km northeast of Moscow. The fire, which broke out in a section of the mine that was under construction, has yet to be fully extinguished. Rescuers were working to recover the bodies from a depth of more than 360 metres. Russia’s Investigative Committee, the state body that investigates major crimes, opened a criminal case over the possible violation of safety rules. Russia’s mining industry has been plagued by accidents for years. In February 2016, 36 miners and rescue workers died in a coal mine above the Arctic circle.
