Rubble buries a house in Pangpangta village, Lvliang city, North China's Shanxi province,
Aug 15, 2011. Due to long-term exploitation by a local coal mining company, the village
suffered a massive house collapse this summer and people were forced to move into cave
dwellings that have been deserted for over ten years. About 60 makeshift houses have been
built near the village by the mining company and local government. But villagers worry they
are still in danger living within the mined-out area. [Photo/CFP]
