Massive mine explosion in Siberia kills at least 52

Most Popular

A massive mine explosion in the Russian region of Siberia has killed at least 52 people, including six rescuers.

The tragedy happened at the Listvyazhskaya mine, located in Russia’s Siberian region of Kuzbass.

Over 240 miners were rescued, 40 of whom required hospitalisation. Initially 11 miners were confirmed dead, with a 35 missing. However, those missing are now presumed dead.

“Most likely, it was explosion of methane, triggered by a spark somewhere, that led to the blast and a shockwave. It injured people who were unable to get out,” Russia’s deputy prosecutor general, Dmitri Demeshin has said.

A criminal probe has already begun.
