ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish officials say rescue teams are looking for nine missing workers after a landslide at an open coal mine killed at least one worker in southern Turkey.

Local authorities in the province of Kahramanmaras say rescue efforts resumed Friday morning with the help of sniffer dogs, a day after the landslide buried the workers. The coal is used as fuel at a power plant in the area.

It was the third major accident this month at a work place in Turkey, where health and safety measures are poorly implemented. Two separate explosions, believed to be caused by faulty oxygen tubes, killed 20 people in an industrial area in the Turkish capital, Ankara, last week.
