during a demonstration for the victims of the Soma mine explosion, in Istanbul, Turkey, 14 May 2014. Turkey declared three days of mourning on 14 May as the death toll from the country’s worst mining disaster in more than two decades reached 205, with fears that the number could climb much higher. Of the 787 workers who were in the coal mine when the explosion and fire occurred late 13 May, only 363 of them have been accounted for, including those killed. EPA/ERDEM SAHIN
