RESCUE crews have recovered all bodies from a coal mine in northern Mexico hit by a gas explosion last week, putting the death toll at 14.
Mexican Labour Secretary Javier Lozano says the rescue phase has ended and the government will start an investigation into mine safety.
The last body was found early yesterday. Last Tuesday’s blast was so powerful it also seriously injured a teenager working outside the mine.
Officials said it was caused by a gas buildup.
