New Zealand crews reenter coal mine 8 years after 29 killed

Mining experts on Tuesday re-entered a coal mine shuttered for more than eight years after one of New Zealand’s worst industrial disasters killed 29 men. The team of experts is looking to investigate the cause and retrieve the remains of victims. Safety concerns prompted the previous government to rule out re-entry, despite opposition from the families of miners.
