Searching for answers as the bury the dead in Turkey

A funeral for one of the 301 victims of a deadly mine explosion in Turkey. The ceremony comes a day after the rescue operation ended at the site of Turkey's worst industrial disaster ever. Anguish and a need for accountability. Twenty-five people, including several mining executives, were detained by police. A Turkish ordered that three of them will remain in custody on a provisional charge of "causing multiple deaths." The others are still being interviewed. The disaster has sparked protests across Turkey, directed at mine owners accused of ignoring safety for profit, and at Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's government, seen as too close to industry bosses. As they bury the dead they want answers. (SOUNDBITE) (Turkish) SOMA RESIDENT HUSEYIN TOPALOGLU SAYING: "The truth should be revealed, it should be revealed in detail. Nothing should remain secret. I want to express my condolences to the country, to our people and relatives of the miners."
