An explosion in a coal mine Monday in China’s far west killed 41 people, with another 42 still missing, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

The blast occurred at 2:30 a.m. in the Shenlong Coal Mine in the Xinjiang region, when about 87 miners were working, Xinhua said. Four were rescued.

China’s coal mines are the world’s deadliest, with explosions, floods and fires killing thousands of workers each year. Inadequate safety equipment and lax safety rules are often blamed for the accidents.
