Rescue workers in Colombia are using large mechanical diggers as they try to find up to 30 people buried under tonnes of mud at a gold mine.
Three bodies have been recovered so far but officials say the unstable soil is making the search problematic.

Colombia's authorities are trying to rescue up to 30 people trapped underground after a gold mine collapsed in the south-west of the country.

And
At least three miners were killed in the incident in the Cauca department.
It is not clear exactly how many people are underneath the rubble, as the mine was operating illegally.
Last Friday, four miners were killed and 65 affected by poisonous gases in another illegal mine in the Colombian north-west.
