HAI PHONG (VNS) — A sudden rockslide yesterday at Trai Son Stone Mine in the northern city of Hai Phong's Thuy Nguyen District killed two drillers on the spot.

According to the Trai Son Stone Mining Co-operative, the rockslide was caused by long rains in a couple of days before so when the two drillers passed through, they were hit by rocks and soils from 20 metres above.

The two victims, both from the neibouring Hai Duong Provice, were reported to start their working at the mine two days ago. They had legal contract and were trained on labour safety. -- VNS
