   Jousting on the subway? Seems he lost.

A passenger was injured on a subway car that jumped off the
rails in the Istanbul Metro. The accident occurred yesterday

Otel havuzuna klor yerine asit attılar
    Everybody out of the pool!

When acid was mixed with water to clean a hotel pool in
Kemer, Antalya, 18 people were poisoned. Chemicals
were being used to clean the hotel pool at a 5-star hotel
in the Beldibi neighborhood but instead of chlorine, acid
was mistakenly introduced into the water.  The resulting
toxic cloud poisoned the 18 tourists and hotel workers.

All those affected were taken to Kemer State Hospital
for treatment and 5 were released soon afterwards.
Treatment for the other 13 victims lasted all day. Gendarmerie
units took security precautions around the hotel and as the
hotel was evacuated. An inquiry has begun.

Kemer district is south of Antalya city.
