Chile miners rescue 'will be tight' inside pipe

In less than 24 hours the first of the trapped Chilean miners could emerge into the outside world.

The narrow steel capsule that will be used to pull the 33 men to the surface has been tested.

The authorities at the San Jose mine say they will start the actual process of bringing the men out at midnight local time on Wednesday.

Rajesh Mirchandani reports from Copiapo.
