Numbing loss turned to rage when hundreds of miners' relatives stormed a local government office in Shaanxi province, demanding information on Sunday's deadly mine blast.

State media, quoting a witness, suggested the riot might have been triggered by officials restricting mine visits to two family members. Only 65 bodies of the 166 have been recovered so far.
