More than 230 people have died after a coal mine explosion in Soma, a small Turkish town of about 70,000 people that is nearly 150 miles from Istanbul.
According to Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz, 787 workers were
inside the mine when an electrical fault triggered the blast. Rescue
teams have pulled out 363 of the workers.
One of those rescued was this man, shown below being kissed by his
father after he was pulled out from the mine. The image was captured by
Turkish photographer Bulent Kilic for Agence France-Presse.
