Pakistan: 11 killed, 9 missing after stone pelting on marble mine

Islamabad, Sep 8 (UNI) At least 11 people died and five were injured, while nine others are still missing after a stone-pelting incident at a marble quarry site in Mohmand, a northwestern tribal district of Pakistan on Monday, local media reported on Tuesday.
Local media quoted rescue officials as saying that at least 25 people went missing after the incident and they have so far extracted 11 dead bodies and five injured from the rubble.
The rescue officials who had to stop their work at night started operation on Tuesday morning, said the reports, adding that rescuers are searching for the nine other missing persons.
According to the reports, most of the victims were labourers who were working at a marble mine at the Ziarat Ghar mountain in Safi tehsil area of Mohmand, a district in the country's northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
The remote area has no telephone and mobile service, which caused a delay in the rescue work.
Additional rescue personnel, search and rescue tools, heavy machinery and ambulances have already reached the site.
