BBC News - Chilean mine rescue freeing trapped men one by one
Twenty of the 33 miners trapped underground for more than two months in northern Chile have been rescued amid scenes of jubilation.

In a continuing operation, a specially-made capsule has been winching the men one by one to the surface.

The Chilean president and first lady, and the miners' loved ones, have been at the top of the shaft to greet them.

The process has gone smoothly, with the entire operation expected to be completed within 30 hours.
