BBC News - Chilean attempt to rescue 33 miners draws near

The first man to be freed from the San Jose mine in northern Chile is expected to reach the surface later on Tuesday, Mining Minister Laurence Golborne says.

He said the rescue operation could begin in the "last quarter of the day" (from 2100 GMT), once final safety tests had been carried out.
