A Mexican official says rescue crews have recovered a sixth body from a coal mine where an explosion occurred. Eight others miners remain missing.
Labor Secretary Javier Lozano says the body was found Thursday. He said chances are slim that anyone survived.
A gas explosion Tuesday in the mine in the northern town of San Juan Sabinas trapped 14 miners and injured a teenaged miner, who lost an arm.
A February 2006 methane gas explosion at another mine in San Juan de Sabinas killed 65 miners.
