Work continues to find trapped Indian miners

Rescue workers in India are continuing efforts to find miners 21 days after they became trapped.

15 men entered an illegal coal pit in the north-eastern state of Meghalaya on 13 December. It is believed they were cut off when floodwater from a nearby river poured in.

There has since been no trace of the workers and their fate remains unknown.

Rescuers have commenced pumping water out of the cave system and Indian Navy divers have joined in the operation.
