Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan walks during his visit to Soma, a district in Turkey's western province of Manisa, after a coal mine explosion

Turkey’s Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan (C) walks during his visit to Soma, a district in Turkey’s western province of Manisa, after a coal mine explosion May 14, 2014. Rescuers pulled more dead and injured from the coal mine in western Turkey on Wednesday more than 19 hours after the explosion, bringing the death toll to 205 in what could become the nation’s worst ever mining disaster. Hundreds more were still believed to be trapped in the mine in Soma, about 480 kilometres (298 miles) southwest of Istanbul. The explosion, which triggered a fire, occurred shortly after 3 pm (1200 GMT) on Tuesday. REUTERS/ Osman Orsal (TURKEY – Tags: DISASTER POLITICS)
