20 killed in Chinese coal mine explosion

BEIJING — An explosion in a Chinese coal mine killed 20 and trapped more than 30 workers underground Saturday in the country's central region, state media reported.
The China blast came shortly after the world was riveted by the Chile's dramatic rescue of 33 trapped miners after they spent more than two months underground.
China Central Television said the blast happened Saturday morning in Henan province. An official surnamed Wu with the province's coal mine safety bureau confirmed the accident but had no details.
