MOSCOW, 6 March. /TASS/. The death toll from a suspected methane gas explosion at a coal mine in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk has risen to 34, a local medical official said on Friday.
The chief doctor of the Donetsk Burns centre, Emil Fistal, told the Donetsk news agency that one more person died in hospital on Friday.
The blast occurred at the Zasyadko coal mine early Wednesday while 230 miners were underground.
The Zasyadko mine is a coal producing enterprize in the center of the Donbas region, Ukraine's industrial and coal-producing heartland. It was put into operation in 1958. The mine, which is considered particularly dangerous for its high methane content, has a history of fatal accidents. The most serious one took the lives of 101 miners in November 2007. A further 52 workers were killed there in early December that same year, and five miners were killed in another episode later that month.
