The behavior of senior officials in Turkey remained under the social media microscope on Thursday, as an aide to the prime minister acknowledged that he did kick a protester the day before.
An explosion left at least 282 workers in a coal mine in Soma, in the western province of Manisa. While hundreds are reportedly still trapped in the mine, Energy Minister Yıldız said their hopes are dimming.
