5 Injured, 37 Missing in Yenakiyevo Coal Mine Blast (Updated)

Early on Sunday, a massive methane explosion at a coal mine in Yanakiyevo, Donetsk oblast, left 5 injured and 37 missing.

As Ukrainian mines continue to devour Ukrainians, the mine's Soviet-era name — Karl Marx — aptly describes the state of the country's coal mining industry.

The accident comes less than a week after the recovery of 11 bodies from the May 23 accident at the Krasnolymanska mine.

Thankfully, 21 people have been rescued; 6 bodies have been recovered.
