Mine rescue teams are carrying out a controlled flooding of Siberia’s Raspadskaya coalmine in order to avert further explosions of methane gas, as this continues to build up in many underground tunnels. This follows reports of thick smoke and zero visibility in a number of sections. The search for 24 missing miners is on indefinite hold.
