Chile miners' rescue to begin Wednesday

Chile's Mining Minister Laurence Golborne has said he is hopeful that the operation to bring the miners to the surface will begin on Wednesday.

At a news conference at the San Jose mine, he said that part of the shaft will need to be lined before the Phoenix rescue capsule can be safely lowered. The process should take a day and a half to complete.
