Rescuers in Nicaragua raced against the clock Saturday to locate five people still missing two days after a cave-in at an unlicensed gold mine following the overnight rescue of 20 of their colleagues.
"Hopefully we can find them in the coming hours," First Lady Rosario Murillo, the presidential spokeswoman, told reporters.
The search was under way after 20 miners were pulled out one at a time using a pulley system installed late Friday near the pit where they had been trapped. (AFP)
