MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. Bodies of two more miners have been found in the Severnaya coal mine in Vorkuta, a Russian city north of the Arctic Circle, a source in local operative services told TASS on Friday.
"The overall death toll in the accident reaches four," the source said.
A methane outburst occurred at the mine at the depth of 780 meters on Thursday afternoon. Two explosions caused rock collapse and fire later occurred at the scene, the Vorkutaugol company that owns the mine said.
A total of 110 people were trapped underground, with 80 miners evacuated in the first hours. Eight of them sought medical assistance and four were hospitalized. The fate of 26 miners remains unknown.
