Russian emergency services said on Thursday they had suspended an operation to rescue more than 40 people stuck in an accident-hit mine in Siberia due to the risk of an explosion, the RIA news agency reported.

At least 11 people died after coal dust caught fire in a ventilation shaft in the Listvyazhnaya mine in the snowbound Kemerovo region, filling the mine with smoke.
