Ecuador Mine Explosion

PONCE ENRIQUEZ, Ecuador (AP) _ Rescue workers say all miners
have been accounted for in a powerful explosion at a gold mine in
southern Ecuador. Earlier reports said 60 workers were trapped.
Officials say the explosion did kill one worker and injure 36.
An army colonel says last night's explosion occurred in the
mine's munitions storehouse, which contained some 100 sticks of
dynamite. He blamed the blast on ``human error'' by the miner who
was killed.
