Beijing: Four workers were killed by an unknown gas when they were repairing heating pipelines in north China`s Inner Mongolia autonomous region, the local work safety watchdog said Wednesday.

Another two workers who entered the well to rescue them were also poisoned and died later despite medical efforts, said a statement from the watchdog.
