world Updated: Oct 10, 2010 09:09 IST

The rescue of 33 miners trapped in a Chilean mine is likely to start on Wednesday, Mining Minister Laurence Golborne said hours after a drill shaft broke through to the trapped men.

"We are setting the likely start date of the rescue around Wednesday," Golborne told reporters Saturday, adding that engineers needed time to stabilize the shaft through which the men will exit.
