Six people were killed and 3 injured when a gold mine collapsed in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
The people who died were allegedly digging illegally on land belonging to a mining company in the town of Kyekyewere when the accident occurred, Vanguard reports.
Ghana’s central gold mining areas have recently experienced a spike in illegal mining, driven by high prices for gold. The country is Africa’s second-largest producer of gold.
