South Africa: Dozens of illegal miners trapped
Rescue workers in South Africa are trying to reach dozens of miners who were trapped while working illegally in an abandoned mine.

 

The South African Press Association reported Sunday that rescue teams were able to speak to about 30 miners near the top of an old gold mine shaft whose entrance was covered by a large rock. Those miners said as many as 200 others were trapped further down a steep tunnel at the mine in Benoni, on the outskirts of Johannesburg. (AP)
