PM Erdoğan has cited decades-old ? if not centuries-old ? examples to defend his government over its mining record, pointing to a mine accident in Britain in 1838 during a press conference about the Soma disaster on May 14.
‘I should pull of my boats so that the stretcher doesn?t get stained,’ the worker was heard as saying only a few moments after being pulled out of the mine
Authorities said large numbers of coffins were taken from nearby mosques and loaded onto trucks
