At least 20 miners have been killed and hundreds have been trapped over a mile underground after a fire tore through a mine in Turkey's western province of Manisa, officials have said.
Local member of parliament Muzaffer Yurttas told broadcaster NTV that the bodies of 20 workers, believed to have died from suffocation and burns, had been retrieved from the mine and that at least another 20 workers had been taken to hospital.
"They are pumping oxygen into the mine, but the fire is still burning. They say it is an electrical fault but it could be that coal is burning as well," Tamer Kucukgencay, chairman of the regional labour union, told Reuters by telephone.
