The RIA-Novosti news service said 385 miners were underground on Saturday in the Zasyadko mine in Donetsk when the mine experienced a methane blast.

No deaths were reported in the Saturday accident that injured 44 workers.

According to the Associated Press four rescue workers at the site were killed on Sunday in a second methane blast.

One hundred miners died at the mine in a methane gas explosion on November 18 in the country's worst mining accident post Soviet rule.
