A rescue operation is underway to free hundreds of miners trapped after a fire and explosion in a Turkish coal mine.
Cengiz Ergun, mayor of Manisa, said nearly 600 workers were trapped at the time of the explosion, Reuters have reported.
Ergun's figures are yet to be confirmed by Turkey's disaster response unit which had put the death toll at 17 earlier.
It is also reported that an electrical fault started the fire.
