China’s mine safety attempt fails – Reuters

From Reuters, via CNN:

China has admitted that a drive to get officials to give up their illegal stakes in highly profitable but dangerous coal mines has hit a dead end, stymying the latest campaign to improve the world’s deadliest mining industry.

Many officials were keeping their shares, deliberately ignoring orders from Beijing issued last month to give them up by Thursday or face penalties that included dismissal, the state-run China Daily said.
