Chile mine rescue under way

The 33 men trapped more than 600 metres underground are finally being pulled out.

    Thirty-three miners, after being trapped underground for 69 days in a mine in northern Chile, are finally being pulled up to the surface one by one through a narrow shaft.

    They are greeted by tearful relatives who have been camping outside the mine since the August 5 accident.
