37 miners have been been killed in two coal mining accidents in Ukraine.

A methane explosion is suspected to have caused a blast at the Suhodilska-Eastern mine in the Luhansk region, which killed 26 workers on Friday.

In a second incident, 11 miners were killed on the same day when an elevator collapsed at a mine in Donetsk region.

Rescue workers have now found the bodies of all missing miners who were working in the east of the country, reports AP.
