Chile's president visits trapped miners
Chilean President Sebastian Pinera has visited the mine where 33 miners remain trapped.
Mr Pinera's visit coincided with the start of drilling for a third escape tunnel with a huge drill borrowed from an oil company.
President Pinera, making his fifth visit to the San Jose mine, told the miners he hoped that on his next visit he would be meeting them above ground.
