Four workers died when a building they were demolishing near a coal mine of Russian steel producer Severstal collapsed on Saturday, the company said in a statement.

The people worked for a contractor hired for the job, Severstal said, adding that a violation of safety rules probably caused the accident.

Coal production at the Vorgashorskaya mine in northwestern Russia was unaffected, the company said.
