MEXICO CITY  - Three miners were killed and one other was presumed dead after a coal mine collapsed in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila early on Friday, a senior government official said.

Labor Minister Javier Lozano announced the deaths of the three miners on his Twitter account.

About 132 miners were working in the Esmeralda mine operated by Minera del Norte, an affiliate of Mexican steelmaker Altos Hornos de Mexico, when the accident occurred.
