Miners trapped in cave-in for almost a week

Nine workers trapped inside since last Thursday have been rescued from the Cabezo de Negro mine in Peru.

The cave-in was caused by an explosion they set off. The mine is one of many "informal" and unregulated mines dotted across the country.

The rescue mission was witnessed by President Ollanta Humala who urged "informal" companies to register their workers and improve safety measures.
