27 died in Peru underground mine blast

Lima, May 7 (Prensa Latina) At least 27 miners died Sunday by an underground mine explosion, approximately 100 meters deep, in the province of Condesuyos in the southern Peruvian region of Arequipa, police sources reported.

The blast occurred at Saturday-Sunday midnight at the Esperanza 1 mine in the town of Yanaquihua.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation, the Ministry of Interior informed. The explosion triggered a fire as the wooden beams caught fire.

The possibility of survivors is ruled out because the explosion generated a dark smoke that surely caused death by asphyxiation to eventual survivors, according to newspaper reports.
