KABUL - At least 27 miners in Afghanistan have been killed in a collapse in a coal mine, officials said on Sunday, in an accident likely to reinforce worries about a sector that many Afghans hope can underpin the country's development.

The collapse occurred on Saturday evening in the northern province of Samangan, said provincial governor's spokesman Sediq Azizi.

"Rescue teams have recovered 27 dead miners and there are 22 more wounded," Azizi said. District police chief Akram Behzad said all trapped miners had been rescued.
