Three Pakistan mine workers killed at work

In the latest of a series of accidents at the coal mines in the Duki region of Balochistan in central Pakistan, three miners were poisoned to death earlier this month. Unfortunately these have not been the only deaths in the coal mines in this region and are an indicator of the dangerous working conditions that exist. For workers in Pakistan, death at the workplace is tragically too common (see here and here), while workers trying to improve wages and conditions routinely face repression (see here and here).
