Turkish mine explosion death toll reaches 201

The Turkish government announced early Wednesday that so far, 201 miners are known to have lost their lives and at least 80 have been injured in a coal mine explosion and fire in Turkey's western Manisa province on Tuesday.

Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said that 363 miners of the 787 who were working underground have been accounted for, including the deceased and the 80 people rescued with injuries. Four of the injured are in critical condition. Yildiz said the deaths were due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

The explosion and fire occurred in the privately-owned mine in the district of Soma following an electrical fault during a shift changeover. The fire broke out 150 meters underground, Yildiz said.

The trapped workers are thought to be 3.5 km away from the entrance to the mine.

President Abdullah Gul has ordered the Manisa Governor's Office to use all means available to help state officials with the rescue operation.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has canceled a trip to Albania to pay a visit to the province, has offered condolences to the families of those killed.

The latest incident is one of the numerous mining accidents that Turkey has had in recent years. Accidents, cave-ins, and explosions have claimed the lives of dozens of mine workers yearly.

The worst mining tragedy in Turkey occurred in 1992, when a fire and explosion killed 263 people. The second and third worst took place in 1983 and 1990, leaving 103 and 68 dead respectively in methane gas explosions.

Mines and stone quarries are the most dangerous places for Turkish workers. According to data, more than 10 percent of work-related accidents in 2013 were in the mining sector.

耶尔德兹说,从井下被救出的80名伤者已被送往附近医院救治,其中4人伤势严重。

据当地媒体报道,事故发生在矿井下,当时一个配电器发生故障引起爆炸和大火。遇难人员主要是死于窒息和大火。关于事发时被困井下的矿工人数,各方说法不一,土耳其灾害管理中心此前说580名矿工被困,也有媒体说当时787人被困井下。土耳其方面已出动数百名救援人员和设备进行整夜搜救,目前尚不清楚井下还有多少人被困。预计遇难人数还可能上升。

由于安全条件普遍较差,近年来土耳其煤矿事故频发。2013年1月,土耳其西北部宗古尔达克省发生煤矿瓦斯爆炸事故,造成8人死亡。(新华网)
