Jade mine collapse in Myanmar kills over 100

A landslide at a jade mine in northern Myanmar has killed at least 100 people. The miners were collecting stones in the jade-rich Hpakant area of Kachin state when a pile of mine waste collapsed into a lake, triggering a wave of mud and water that buried scores of workers. Deadly landslides and other accidents have plagued the poorly regulated mines of Hpakant for years.

Incredibly sad. Apparently the Govt. has done absolutely nothing since it committed to doing something in 2016.
