Rescue workers are racing against time to reach hundreds of miners trapped underground after an explosion and fire at a coal mine in western Turkey.
The explosion tore through the mine as workers were preparing for a shift change, so there were more miners inside the mine than usual.
During the night, people cheered and applauded as some trapped workers emerged, their faces and hard hats covered in soot and mud.
