NGHỆ AN — Three miners died and another was injured in a rockslide that occurred yesterday afternoon in a company’s quarry in Châu Quang Commune in central Nghệ An Province’s Quỳ Hợp District.

The commune People’s Committee confirmed last night that the victims were buried while working at the quarry. One of the victims was identified as Lương Văn Hương, 34, of Châu Quang Commune.

The Quỳ Hợp District People’s Committee sent employees to the scene this morning to assist the local authority to deal with the rockslide’s aftermath and determine the reason for the mishap.
