At least seven people were killed Friday and another seven injured
At least seven people were killed Friday and another seven injured in a coal mine gas blast in southern China, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The agency quoted a local safety official as saying that the accident happened in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Friday morning when around 100 miners were underground.

Eighty-four people have been safely brought to the surface.

China's mining industry is considered one of the world's most dangerous with accidents killing up to 7,000 workers annually. A major gas blast at Liaoning's Sunjiawan mine in February 2005 killed more than 200 miners, making it the worst mining tragedy in China for at least 15 years.
