Protest erupts in Turkish town where 245 died

Published: 05.14.14, 21:35 / Israel News

Anger and grief boiled over into a violent protest Wednesday in the western Turkish town of Soma, where officials said at least 245 miners died in a coal mine explosion and fire.

 

Nearly 450 other miners were rescued, the mining company said, but the fate of an unknown number of others remained unclear in one of the world's deadliest mining disasters in decades.

 

There was no immediate confirmation of the company's number from Turkish officials, who earlier said 363 miners had been rescued. (AP)
