Georgian officials say a powerful explosion killed four coal miners in the ex-Soviet state.
The Interior Ministry said Wednesday several more miners were wounded in the blast in the western town of Tkibuli, one of them severely.
It said the blast apparently was due to methane.
The town about 230 kilometers (140 miles) west of the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, is the center of coal mining in the impoverished Caucasus Mountains nation.
