President Nicos Anastasiades and his government have expressed their sincere condolences to the Turkish government and people for the tragic event at a coal mine in Western Turkey.

In a written statement, Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides said that Anastasiades and the government also expressed their deep sympathy to the families of the victims.

“President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades and the government express their sincere condolences to the Turkish government and the Turkish people for the tragic event at a coal mine in Western Turkey, during which hundreds of people lost their lives and dozens of others were injured,” Christodoulides said.

Some 240 workers have died and more than 100 remain trapped in a disaster likely to prove the deadliest of its kind in Turkish history.
