110 miners are now confirmed dead from the Ulyanovskaya coal mine blast in Russia's Kemerovo region, after 2 more bodies were recovered. The death toll from the March 19 incident is the largest ever in a modern Russian mine.

The bodies have been identified and their funeral will take place on Thursday. Other miners caught in the explosion sustained injuries and had to undergo medical treatment.

According to investigators, gas monitoring equipment was allegedly switched off and caused the accident.
