Three dozen rescued after blast in east German potash mine

Around three dozen mine staff in eastern Germany were rescued on Friday after being trapped 700 metres (2,300 feet)below ground following an unexplained blast in a potash mine, police said.

 

The local broadcaster MDR reported that firefighters had carried out a rescue operation, and shortly afterwards local police tweeted: "All personnel have been rescued".

 

Before the rescue, the mining authority had said one of the staff was seriously injured, according to the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung news website.
