Sensors noted high levels of toxic gas inside a coal mine days before the Turkish mining disaster that killed 301 workers but company officials took no action, Turkish news reports said Monday.Chief prosecutor Bekir Sahiner said 25 people were initially detained as part of the probe, but several were released without charges while eight others were released but could be charged later.The Hurriyet, HaberTurk, Milliyet and other Turkish newspapers said prosecutors and inspectors probing the worst mining disaster in Turkey's history had seized data from the mine that indicated sensors showed high gas levels inside the mine as early as two days before the May 13 disaster.
