Investigations are continuing into the Soma mine disaster, which claimed the lives of 301 men.

Turkish police detained 25 people for questioning on Sunday, including several mining company officials.

But the families of some of the victims have accused the authorities of insensitivity and say they now face an uncertain future.

The BBC's Selin Girit visited Elmadere, a village of just 80 families, which lost 11 of its men.
