MOSCOW, Oct 19 -- At least six people were killed and 14 others injured after a dam collapsed in the Kuraginsky district of Russia's Krasnoyarsk region on Saturday, Xinhua news agency quoted the local media.

"The fate of 10 other people remains unknown," said the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

The regional office of the Russian Emergencies Ministry said earlier that a dam on a water reservoir of a gold-mining company collapsed on Saturday morning, flooding two temporary worker dormitories.

According to the reports, 41 people and 12 equipment units have been engaged in the research and resue operation. An airmobile unit with helicopters has been dispatched to the site.
