BEIJING - High levels of carbon monoxide have forced rescuers to suspend their efforts to save 19 coal miners trapped in a colliery in southern China, state media said on Monday, two days after it collapsed.

Xinhua said the mine located in Heshan in Guangxi region collapsed due to non-stop heavy rain.

While 49 miners managed to escape, 19 remained trapped, the report said. Rescuers have already recovered three bodies.

"The location of the trapped miners has been identified, but their conditions are unclear," Xinhua said, citing the rescuers.
