Death toll of Turkish coal mine explosion reaches 201; 80 rescued but injured

Published: 05.14.14, 07:44 / Israel News

An explosion and fire at a coal mine in western Turkey Wednesday killed at least 201 workers, authorities said, in one of the worst mining disasters in Turkish history.

 

Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said 787 people were inside the coal mine in Soma, some 250 kilometers (155 miles) south of Istanbul, at the time of the accident and 363 of them had been rescued so far.

 

At least 80 miners were injured, including four who were in serious condition, Yildiz told reporters in Soma, as he oversaw the rescue operation involving more than 400 rescuers. (Associated Press)
