Anxious relatives of miners still missing in an explosion in Soma, Turkey, have gathered at the site.

Officials say at least 201 workers were killed and scores injured in the blast, which was triggered by an electrical fault. Rescuers worked through the night to reach hundreds more miners still trapped underground.

The BBC's Rengin Arslan filmed the scene on the ground, with family members waiting close to the rescue operation.
