A mining disaster that killed 283 people in Turkey's western region of Soma is "unbelievable", the chairman of the mine operator Soma Holding told reporters. Alp Gurkan added that the mine had a strong safety record.
Gurkan said that the fire was not linked to an electricity sub-station, but that the build up of heat had caused a partial collapse of the mine. He confirmed that 787 workers were in the mine when the fire broke out.
