Two days after the devastating explosion in a Leverkusen waste incineration plant in Chempark, emergency services found three other people dead in the rubble.

The police and the public prosecutor announced.

The number of fatalities now discovered increased to five.

According to the Chempark operating company Currenta, 31 people were injured.

Two people are still missing, the authorities said.
