Rescue search completed in Turkey

  • The energy minister of Turkey said the rescue search has been completed in the region and the death toll from the recent explosion in a coal mine is officially 301.

    Taner Yildiz mentioned that 485 miners are safe and "all corners of the mine were searched by a large team, and there was no other body or living person." 

    Media reports indicate that negligence wasn't the cause of this accident but there have still been protests in the region. One miner blamed the company for it. "The new gas levels had gotten too high and they didn't tell us on time."
