Colombian authorities said they recovered 20 bodies — including those of two children — after a landslide in a poor Medellin suburb and that more than 100 people were missing and feared dead.
A coal mine explosion in northwestern Colombia killed at least 16 miners and left dozens trapped more than 10 hours later, President Alvaro Uribe said Thursday.
John Rendon, emergency coordinator for Antioquia state, where the suburb is located, said 30 homes were buried under tons of sodden earth in the slide.
The Wednesday-night explosion at the San Fernando mine, believed to have been caused by a buildup of methane gas, collapsed part of an access tunnel that is more than a mile long and drops to a depth of 500 feet, said provincial disaster coordinator John Rendon.
