Eleven persons have been arrested for their roles in a deadly mine accident that killed 22 people in northern China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, authorities said on Monday.

The people’s Procuratorate of Xilingol League, where the accident happened, said the suspects were charged with causing a major work safety accident.

The accident occurred on Feb. 23, when a shuttle vehicle lost control and crashed into the side of a tunnel in a lead, zinc and silver mine under Yinman Mining Company in the West Ujimqin.

An investigation showed that the vehicle involved in the accident was illegally purchased online, and also bypassed safety checks.

It was also discovered that the shuttle was overloaded at the time of the accident.
