24 Killed In Ukraine Mine Explosion

KIEV, Ukraine, July 30 (UPI) — At least 24 people were killed in an explosion at a mine in Ukraine, emergency officials said Saturday.

The Ukrainian Emergencies Ministry said two people were missing from the Friday blast at the Sukhodilska-Vostochnaya Mine in the southeastern part of the country, RIA Novosti reported. Two of the 28 people in the mine early Friday morning escaped with burn injuries.

The collapse of a large excavating machine crane at another mine killed at least two people Friday, one of them a woman. Three people were still missing at the Bazhanov Mine in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine.

The Sukhodilska-Vostochnaya Mine is operated by Metinvest International, RIA Novosti said. The Swiss-based steel trading company operates three factories in Ukraine.

A miner was killed Tuesday in a roof collapse at another mine in the Donetsk region. Three others were still missing.
