A miner is moved on a stretcher after being rescued in an operation to reach a group of miners trapped in a gold mine in the community of El Comal, near Bonanza in northeastern Nicaragua, on August 29, 2014Twenty miners trapped underground for more than 24 hours have been rescued after a cave-in at an unlicensed gold mine in Nicaragua, but five more workers were still missing. "We give thanks to God our Lord and the Virgin Mary for having saved from death 20 artisanal miners," First Lady Rosario Murillo, the presidential spokeswoman, told reporters. There had been 28 "guiriseros," or informal gold miners, working in the shaft when the mouth of the mine caved in because of a landslide triggered by heavy downpours, early Thursday morning. Two workers buried near the surface had earlier managed to dig their way out after the collapse in the remote village of El Comal in northeastern Nicaragua, according to the local disaster prevention committee.
