NATURAL ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION File photographs show Rudna copper mine in southwestern Poland, where at least two miners have died and six are missing after an earthquake, according to state news agency PAP. The magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck at 9:09 p.m. (2009 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It said the quake was very shallow, only 10 km (6.2 miles) deep, which would have magnified its effect at the mine belonging to state-run copper producer KGHM. Three miners who suffered back and head injuries are in hospital, their condition is stable, and their life is not threatened, according to RMF FM.
