Protests at Colombian coal mine claim one life

Protests at Colombian coal mine claim one life
One person has been killed and 28 injured during protests at a coal mine in Colombia. The demonstrators claimed that 1,200 trucks which ferry coal out of the pit every day were causing pollution and lung disease in the local town.

They also say the lorries cause traffic accidents and damage roads.

20 people died when a coal lorry collided with a bus recently.
