      GUWAHATI, India: At least seven miners were killed after being trapped inside a coal pit when a section of mine collapsed in the northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya, sources said Friday.

      The accident occurred at the remote Nongalbibra Coalfields in South Garo Hill district, 350 kilometres (218 miles) from Meghalaya capital Shillong, said a police spokesman. The miners were buried alive while digging a pit when a huge chunk of land caved in followed by gushing water, trapping all of them, he said.
