60 persons dead in a gold mine explosion in Burkina Faso

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Over 60 persons have been killed and about 100 injured in an explosion at a gold mine in Burkina Faso.

Burkina Faso is the 5th largest gold miner in Africa but sadly has a lot of informal mines that operate without check and regulations.

Authorities are now investigating 🙄.

Typical line to expect of course!
