Three die in Kazakhstan coal mine collapse

ALMATY, June 29 (Reuters) – Three people died and one was seriously injured when part of a coal mine operated by steel giant ArcelorMittal collapsed in Kazakhstan, the company said on Monday. The collapse at the Tentekskaya mine in the Karaganda region in central Kazakhstan on Sunday also left one miner seriously injured, the company said in a statement. ArcelorMittal, which operates a steel plant in Kazakhstan, also runs several mines to provide it with coking coal. Production at the mine has been halted but will likely restart by the end of the day, ArcelorMittal spokesman Nikolai Kubrakov said by telephone from Temirtau where the company’s steel plant is based.
