Turkey Buries Miners as Hope Fades for Survivors

Rescue teams on Thursday recovered eight more victims from the Turkish mine in Soma, raising the death toll to 282, with 142 people still unaccounted for following Tuesday's explosion and fire, NBC News reported. Meanwhile, women wailed and sang songs over the graves of relatives killed in Turkey's worst mining accident, even as more hearses pulled up and backhoes dug more graves around them. No miner has been brought out alive since dawn Wednesday from the coal mine.
