ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Federal inspectors issued 193 citations and 13 orders at U.S. mine operations in August.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration says it conducted the inspections at 14 coal mines and seven other mines.

The special impact inspections were conducted in 12 states, including Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia.

The inspections began in 2010 after the Upper Big Branch mine explosion in West Virginia killed 29 miners.
