(AP) Three workers who were trapped by a controlled detonation and gas leak at a potassium mine in Germany have died.

A spokesman for K + S GmbH, the company that owned the mine, says rescue workers found the bodies of the three men on Tuesday night while searching the depths of the mine in Unterbreizbach in the eastern state of Thuringia.
