MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities have released the name of the second man whose body was recovered from the rubble of a Minneapolis apartment building explosion.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office identifies the victim as 60-year-old Mrimri (mree-mree) Jama Farah of Minneapolis.

Farah's body was recovered Friday from the building that was demolished after the New Year's Day explosion and fire.

A 57-year-old resident, Ahmed Farah Ali, also didn't make it out of the building. His body was recovered Thursday.

A third person injured in the explosion, 29-year-old Abdiqani Adan, died Friday at Hennepin County Medical Center. He did not live in the building.

Two people remain in critical condition and five in satisfactory condition Monday at HCMC. One person is in fair condition at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview.
