Search for Three Missing Miners Continues

Hrastnik, 26 April - The search for the three missing miners continues in the Trbovlje-Hrastnik pit on Thursday, after rescue teams searched in vain throughout the night. The rescue operation was hampered by water flowing into the mine, so that additional pumps had to be installed. The search now focuses on the shaft where the second body was recovered on Wednesday afternoon, the acting director Aljosa Kink and the technical chief assistant Danijel Galuf said at a news conference on Thursday.
