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 demonstrators in the town shouted anti-government slogans.

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

There have been angry anti-government rallies across Turkey for the last three days over what has become the country's worst-ever mine disaster.
