Dozens trapped in Indonesia mine collapse
2019-02-27 10:17:51

At least 60 people are feared to have been buried by a landslide at an illegal Indonesian gold mine, the BBC reports. 

Rescuers are searching for survivors at the site, in the Bolaang Mongondow area, on the island of Sulawesi.

Indonesia's disaster agency said one person had been found dead and at least 13 rescued by 0500 on Wednesday (2200 GMT Tuesday).

A spokesman said supporting beams gave way at the mine "due to unstable land and numerous mining shafts".

"It is estimated that as many as 60 people are buried under landslide and rock material," the agency said.
