At least 16 people have been detained in connection with the Turkish mine disaster that left 301 workers dead last week, according to multiple reports. The general manager of the mine, Ramazan Dogru, and its operations manager, Akin Celik, were among those arrested, though it was not immediately clear whom else was brought in with them. Other reports peg the number of people detained at 18.

Rescue workers on Saturday recovered the last two missing bodies from the mine, raising the death toll over 300 and making it the worst mining disaster in Turkish history. Protesters have taken to the streets in the past week to criticize the government for allegedly moving too slowly to determine what caused the mine fire and whom should be blamed for it. Jon Terbush

Bernie Sanders distanced himself Sunday from "Berniebros," a wide-ranging term that some have used to describe sexist supporters of the Vermont senator.

"It's disgusting," he said on CNN's State of the Union. "We don't want that crap. Anybody who is supporting me and doing sexist things, we don't want them. I don't want them. That's not what this campaign is about."
