Turkish minister: Mine death toll may be about 300

Published: 05.16.14, 10:43 / Israel News

Turkey's energy minister said Friday that a maximum of 18 miners still remain underground inside a devastated coal mine and that he expect the final death toll to be around 300.


Although he did not spell it out, Energy Minister Taner Yildiz's comments suggested that no one else was expected to come out alive from the mine in Soma, western Turkey. Some 284 miners are known to have died in Turkey's worst mining disaster. (AP)
