A makeshift mine in southern Colombia collapsed Saturday after local residents began tunneling for rumored deposits of gold, killing at least 21 people and injuring another 18, authorities said. Efforts were under way to find about 10 people missing and presumed trapped underground in the mine, located near the town of Suarez, 350 kilometers southwest of the capital, Bogota.
