Seven people, including 6 foreign nationals, died when some gas cylinders exploded at the SAS gold mine in Zimbabwe's Mazowe district on Thursday, police said.

The 6 foreigners were Chinese, Mazowe lawmaker Fortune Chasi told Reuters.

"When I got there, the police were collecting the bodies. Ministry of mines officials and other government officials were there trying to establish what exactly happened," Chasi said.

Officers were "investigating the circumstances in which six foreign nationals as well as a Zimbabwean died when some gas cylinders exploded at SAS mine," police spokesperson Paul Nyathi.

Another person was critically injured and taken to a local hospital, Nyathi added.
