Brazil dam collapse: 400 people still missing

Rescuers in Brazil are searching for any survivors after a huge dam collapsed – unleashing a cascade of mine waste and mud.

At least nine people are dead and 400 still missing after the disaster struck at the Vale iron ore mine near Brumadinho in southeastern Brazil yesterday lunchtime.

Officials say there’s now little chance of finding anyone else alive.
