Chile miners' rescue 'likely to start on Wednesday'

The Chilean government says the first of the miners who have been trapped at the bottom of a pit for more than two months will be brought to the surface on Wednesday.

They will have to wait the extra days while part of the evacuation shaft is reinforced with metal pipes.

Rajesh Mirchandani reports from the San Jose mine.
