A methane explosion at the Zasyadko mine in the eastern Donetsk region of Ukraine has left dozens dead.
Distraught relatives have gathered to wait for news of their loved ones.
Some scanned lists of the names of victims.
Medics were on hand to comfort relatives.
Some of the miners who survived the explosion are in hospital, being treated in pressure chambers.
Rescuers continue to search for miners who remain missing underground.
Ukraine's coal mines are among the most dangerous in the world. A gas leak in September 2006 - also at the Zasyadko mine - killed 13 miners and injured dozens more.
