Palace greeting for Chile miners

The 33 Chilean miners rescued after 69 days underground have been feted by President Sebastian Pinera during a palace reception in Santiago.

Each miner was given a medal to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Chile's independence from Spain, which was celebrated while they were trapped.

Tim Willcox reports.
