Search teams in Nicaragua on Tuesday recovered the bodies of at least four men killed in a cave-in at an old gold mine in the country's northwest, authorities said.

The cave-in occurred Monday night at the Rincon de Los Garcia mine in the town of Villanueva, 132 kilometers (80 miles) northwest of Managua after heavy rains in the area, the town's mayor told Radio Ya.

The four were killed as they were leaving the mine after a 10-hour shift, said the mayor, Juan Gomez.

Their bodies were recovered early Tuesday, he said.

It was the second deadly mine disaster in Nicaragua since August when seven men were killed in the Caribe mine.
