Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen has extended condolences for victims of the coal mine blast in western Turkish town of Soma, wishing speedy recovery for injured workers.

“They were working in the most dire conditions to make the ends meet for their families,” Gülen said about the victims, adding that no word would be a consolation and no word would express the pain of separation. “We can do nothing except pray for them and share their pains with wept eyes,” Gülen stressed.

He wished that trapped mine workers will be saved soon.

Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yıldız said at least 151 workers died in the coal mine blast while hundreds are still trapped inside.
