  • Three dozen rescued after blast in east German potash mine

One person was feared to be seriously wounded after the blast while another was slightly injured.

Following an explosion in the mine, about 35 people were trapped underground at a depth of about 700 meters.

According to Halle police on Twitter, all people were rescued safely.

They were also being supplied with oxygen in secure areas underground, the state mining authority in Saxony-Anhalt told news agency dpa.

The local broadcaster MDR reported that firefighters had carried out a rescue operation, and shortly afterwards local police tweeted: "All personnel have been rescued".

During the game's second quarter, the cat wandered onto the field before sprinting through the Giants' end zone. It eventually exited the field in the corner of the end zone and into the tunnel but has yet to be found.

The facility is a former potash mine where mineral waste is now stored.

Authorities said all work at the mine would stop until the cause had been clarified, however early signs pointed towards a hydrogen explosion or deflagration.

Teutschenthal is located outside the city of Halle, about 150 km (95 miles) southwest of Berlin.

Last month, Halle was shocked by an anti-Semitic shooting attack near a synagogue, in which two people were killed.
