A methane explosion in a Czech coal mine killed 13 miners on Thursday, including 11 Polish nationals and two Czechs, the mine operator, OKD, said today.

The state-run company said a methane blast occurred more than 800 meters underground, devastating areas of the CSM hard-coal mine, near the town of Karvina, on Thursday.

The incident is the worst mining accident in the Czech Republic since 1990, when 30 miners died in a fire at a mine near Karvina.
