Hopes fade for 18 trapped Turkish miners

0

ISTANBUL: Hopes were fading Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) of finding alive any of 18 Turkish coal miners trapped when their shaft was engulfed by water, as rescue workers made last-ditch efforts to find survivors. The accident in southern Turkey was the latest to hit the country’s disaster-prone mining industry after 301 workers were killed in a coal mine explosion in May.
