(08-12 18:35)

Turkey's state-run news agency says a mine has collapsed in the north of the country, trapping nine people inside.
The Anadolu Agency says the collapse occurred Tuesday near the city of Zonguldak, on Turkey's Black Sea coast. There was no immediate information on the miners' condition.
