Underground search suspended after 3 die in Utah mine

A sense of doleful finality settled Friday over the quivering mountain here that swallowed six coal miners 11 days ago.

Underground search efforts aimed at finding them were suspended indefinitely after crumbling tunnel walls inside the Crandall Canyon Mine killed two rescue workers and a federal mine inspector Thursday night.
