İzmir police intervene as thousands protest Turkish mine blast

Police fired tear gas and water cannons at thousands of protesters in the western city of İzmir on May 15, as a 24-hour strike got underway over the deadly mine explosion in Soma.

Police intervened twice when around 20,000 protesters took to İzmir’s streets to protest the deaths of 284 miners in the country’s worst ever industrial accident, which took place on May 13.
