Authorities arrested two bank officials they say were partially responsible for a coal mine flood believed to have killed 57 workers in China's deadliest mining accident this year, the official Xinhua News Agency said Saturday. Su Rijun and Bai Xiaozhong, of the Agricultural Bank of China, have been "found to have correlated responsibility for the flooding accident" in Shanxi province, Xinhua said, citing Bai Yulong, spokesman for the rescue headquarters. The report did not say what role the officials had in the May 18 incident at the Xinjing mine or give any details on their arrests.
