Rescue teams have found the bodies of 28 people underground, after Monday’s explosion at a coal mine in Turkey.

Initial indications show they died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Two other miners are missing but authorities say there is little chance they have survived.

Rescue efforts have been intense at the site in the northern Black Sea province of Zonguldak in Turkey, a country in which mining disasters are common.
