Landslide kills 11 miners in Indonesia

A landslide sparked by heavy rains has killed 11 miners in Indonesia, authorities said on Thursday, marking the latest in a string of deadly mining accidents across the Southeast Asian archipelago.The victims were about 20 metres (65 feet) underground at an unlicensed coal mine near a village in South Sumatra province when the accident happened on Wednesday. Unlicensed mines are common across mineral-rich Indonesia and the scene of frequent accidents. (afp)
