Two coal mine managers have been arrested in connection with one of China’s deadliest recent mining disasters, a gas explosion that killed 166 miners last year, a news report said Saturday.

The explosion ripped through the Chenjiashan Coal Mine in the northwestern city of Tongchuan on Nov. 28, 2004.

Liu Shuangming, the mine’s former director, and Wang Yujun, its former deputy director and chief engineer, were arrested Friday, the Xinhua News Agency said, citing police.
