Three killed in Ecuador mine collapse
Three people were rescued, and another two are still missing, said the National Risk and Emergency Management Service.
The collapse happened in the Esmeraldas province near the border with Colombia.
Local media reported that the accident resulted from excavations in an illegal mine that caused a landslide.
"I have ordered risk and emergency agencies to take all necessary actions to safeguard people's lives," Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno tweeted. ■
