At least 13 people were killed after a dam collapsed in Russia's Krasnoyarsk region on Saturday, a government official said.

"Thirteen people are confirmed dead," Xinhua news agency quoted the spokesperson of the Russian Emergencies Ministry as saying.

The regional office of the 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 latest data, 44 people were injured and the fate of 13 others remain unknown.

Investigators have initiated a criminal probe into the accident on the grounds of violations of security rules.
