As a result of the collapse of a nearly 30 feet deep mine in Angammana in Ratnapura two of its employees were killed.

The police said that while this mine collapsed last afternoon, six employees were working in the mine about 30 feet deep at the time the accident took place.

As the mine collapsed four employees had come out of the mine.

Our area correspondent said that since the other two had been in another section of the mine they were unable to come out quickly and were entrapped.
