GREYMOUTH, New Zealand — Officials on Friday said there has been a third blast inside the New Zealand mine where 29 workers were killed in an earlier explosion.

Pike River Coal chairman John Dow said the blast occurred almost exactly one week to the minute after the first explosion that led to one of the country's worst mining disasters.

Twenty-nine workers were caught in last week's explosion and officials said there was no way they could have survived a second blast on Wednesday.
