Twenty-one coal miners were killed when a mine collapsed in northern China, state media reports on Sunday.
 
The incident occurred in Shenmu in Shaanxi province in the heart of the country's coal-mining belt, at around 4:30pm (0830 GMT) on Saturday, when 87 people were underground. 
 
Sixty-six other miners were rescued, the city government said in a statement, according to state TV and the Xinhua News Agency.
 
The number of fatalities reported in cave-ins, explosions and other disasters in Chinese coal mines has fallen sharply over the past decade but the industry still is the world's deadliest.- AP
