Zimbabwean rescuers pull 22 bodies from mine, eight more found alive

Zimbabwean rescuers pulled the bodies of at least 22 illegal gold miners out of shafts west of Harare that were flooded earlier in the week, and rescued eight more alive. Looking dazed and covered in mud, the miners were whisked away by officials past cheering crowds. Anxious relatives and other miners have camped out at the mining site as they wait for news of their loved ones and colleagues, some expressing frustration at the lack of information they are getting. The accident involving about 70 miners in Battlefields, 175 km west of the capital, happened and has shone a light on the risks run by illegal gold miners, who last year contributed a large part of Zimbabwe’s record 33-ton bullion output.
