Turkey mine disaster: 'We are workers not traitors'

Turkish police have fired tear gas and water cannon at thousands of protesters in the eastern town of Soma, where some 300 miners died on Tuesday.

The protest occurred after the mine operators held a news conference to deny any negligence over the disaster.

However some feel the protesters were wrong to vent their fury at the government.
