Turkish minister: maximum of 18 coal miners yet to be found, final toll likely to be about 300
Rescuers were rushing, but hopes were fading and time was ticking Wednesday on the fate of hundreds of coal workers who were trapped inside a mine in Turkey that exploded in a fiery ball.
Energy Minister Taner Yildiz on Tuesday said security along two major oil pipelines running from Central Asia and Iraq was also improved.
Turkey's Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said 787 people were inside the coal mine in Soma, some 250 kilometers (155 miles) south of Istanbul, at the time of the accident and 363 of them had been rescued so far.
