Trapped miners mark Chile's bicentenary

The 33 trapped miners in Chile joined compatriots in singing the national anthem to mark the 200th anniversary of the country's independence.

The miners signed and raised a Chilean flag and chanted: "Long live Chile, long live the Chilean miners".

A drill hole has reached the men, who have already spent more than a month underground and could be freed in early November.
