Miner Fabio Veloza weeps in front of the La Preciosa mine in Sardinata, northeastern Colombia, Wednesday, Jan. 26. Two relatives of Veloza are among 20 miners feared dead after an explosion believed to have been caused by a methane gas buildup rocked the underground coal mine early Wednesday. Methane gas was also believed to be the cause of an explosion at the mine in 2007 that killed 32 miners.
