At least 16 miners have been killed in a cave-in triggered by a gas explosion at a coal mine in western Pakistan, officials said.

Nine others were injured in the incident in Marwaarh, east of the city of Quetta in Balochistan.

Teams have been sent in to try to recover the bodies of the victims, officials added.

Balochistan province is rich in minerals but its mines have a poor safety record.
