Seven people have been killed in a gas explosion in a coal mine in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila.

Rescue workers said they had been able to retrieve the bodies of the miners, all of whom came from the same family and worked in the mine in Muzquiz.

Explosions caused by methane gas are one of the main dangers in small-scale mining.

In 2006, 65 miners died in an explosion at a mine in Pasta de Conchos, also in Coahuila.
