Turkey mine disaster: Anger as rescue effort winds down

The operator of the Turkish mine that collapsed, killing at least 284 people, has denied any negligence.

Representatives from Soma Holding defended their response to the disaster, telling a news conference their priority had been to save lives.

James Reynolds at the scene reports that there is "no longer such a sense of urgency" but that relatives of miners say that they do not trust the mine's owners over the information that has been released.
