In Ukraine, at least 16 miners have been killed in an explosion underground.

It happened at a mine in the Lugansk region in the east of the country. Two men have been brought to the surface injured. Ten workers are still missing.

The group were working at a depth of 915 metres when the explosion happened in the early hours of the morning. It comes after a fire at the mine last month in which no one was injured.
