Trapped Chile miners to be sent wine

The 33 miners trapped in Chile will soon be able to celebrate with some wine.

In two weeks, as Chile celebrates its bicentenary, some bottles of wine will be sent down for the occasion.

Experts from the American space agency Nasa have spent their first day at the mine. Among them is a nutritionist who will monitor the food supplied to the miners.

Gideon Long reports.
