Report summary

On 13 May, a fire at an underground coal mine in Soma, Manisa province precipitated the release of carbon monoxide during a shift change, claiming the lives of 301 people.  The reasons for the tragedy are still unclear and the death toll may climb as the reported number of miners underground at the time of the fire is being disputed.  The disaster has been widely cited as Turkey’s most devastating industrial disaster.
