Turkey mine explosion

Rescuers desperately raced against time to reach hundreds of miners trapped underground on Wednesday after an explosion and fire at a coal mine in western Turkey killed at least 245 workers, which might make it the deadliest mining disaster in Turkey’s history if the death toll rises further, which is expected.

We, Turkish Cultural Center, express our condolences to the families of people who lost their lives in Soma, Manisa. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Soma and the whole of Turkey today.
