24 killed in Sudan gold mine collapse
Khartoum: At least 24 people were killed when a gold mine collapsed in Sudan, a media report said on Monday.
The incident took place at Alboom, a civil gold exploration site in Dalgo area in Northern state, when a 160-metre deep gold mine collapsed, Xinhua cited the Akhir Lahza daily as saying.
"All attempts to recover the bodies have failed as the gold mine collapsed more than three times," the paper quoted a witness as saying.
A media report said production from gold mines is an important revenue source for the cash-strapped Sudan government.
Mining produced 41 tonnes of gold worth $2.5 billion in January-November last year.
