New Zealand to probe mine disaster

Decision to investigate accident comes after fruitless efforts to rescue miners.

    The New Zealand government is promising to launch an inquiry into the Pike River Mine disaster after police said they now believe 29 men that have been trapped underground for days are all dead.

    Police said there was a second massive explosion in the mine on Wednesday, and that no one could have survived the blast.
