Six miners were killed in a coal mine collapse in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila on Friday, an emergency rescue team source on the site told Reuters.
One miner was rescued earlier, according to a separate report from the mine operator.
The explosion was triggered when a large amount of methane gas ignited, causing the collapse of 100 tonnes of coal, mine owner Altos Hornos de Mexico (AHMSA) said in a statement.
Nearly 300 miners evacuated the mine without incident, the company said.
