Vietnam workers rescued after four days in collapsed tunnel

Twelve Vietnamese workers have been rescued after being trapped for nearly four days in a collapsed tunnel.

They were working on the construction of a hydropower plant in the country's Lam Dong region when the tunnel collapsed.

Bad weather hampered the rescue effort, and there were fears the 11 men and one woman trapped might not survive because of a lack of oxygen.

Adnan Nawaz has more details.
