Death toll in Turkish mine disaster unlikely to exceed 302-minister

ISTANBUL, May 16 (Reuters) - The death toll in this week’s mining accident in western Turkey is unlikely to be more than 302 people, Turkey’s Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Friday.

A maximum of 18 people are still in the coal mine, Yildiz told reporters in televised comments on the country’s deadliest ever mine disaster. (Reporting by Seda Sezer; Editing by Daren Butler)
