Poland – An underground earthquake left at least three miners dead and five missing at the Rudna mine in Polkowice, south-western Poland, according to state media. The earthquake of magnitude 4.4 struck just after 9pm Tuesday local time, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was centred a shallow 10km (6.2 miles) underground, the USGS said, which would have magnified its effect at the mine belonging to state-run copper producer KGHM.
