ANKARA, Turkey — Rescuers on Thursday found the bodies of 28 Turkish miners three days after a methane gas explosion collapsed parts of a major coal mine in northern Turkey, the energy minister said.

Taner Yildiz said rescuers were still trying to find two other miners missing in the Karadon mine, near the Black Sea port of Zonguldak.

The explosion Monday buried the miners some 540 meters below the surface. Eleven miners were evacuated shortly after the explosion.

Some 400 mine rescue workers had been trying to reach the missing miners since then, their work hampered by collapsed rocks.
