From The Shanxi Daily, translated by EastSouthWestNorth:
In the afternoon of March 26, a mining disaster took place at the Shankeng mine in Yangjiazhuang town, Fenyang city, Shanxi province. At noon on March 28, a telephone call was made to the Shanxi Daily hotline: “On March 26, there was an incident at a coal mine in Yangjiazhuang town. Dozens of miners are buried in the well …” Our reporter drove down to Fenyang and found the village at around 4pm. In that village, most of the men have left to work elsewhere.
The coal mine workers came mostly from Shaanxi province. When the reporter attempted to ask for information, nobody would speak to him. The reporter did stop one mine worker who looked around to make sure that there was no one around, said “Never heard of it. I just got here. I know nothing” and then he used this finger to point to a road behind the village. Then the mine worker said “They would be long buried by now” and then he sped away. [Full Text]
