Rescuers free trapped Nicaraguan miners

Most of 24 trapped Nicaraguan gold miners have been freed after a mine collapse, officials said.

The miners were slightly dehydrated but otherwise in good health said Deputy Interior Minister Carlos Najjar.

It is not known if the remaining miners have been located yet.

They were trapped when a shaft at the El Comal mine collapsed after heavy rains on Thursday.
