Miners carry stretchers as other take cover from rain in a makeshift tent at the site of a landslide at a gold mine in San Juan Arriba

Miners carry stretchers as other take cover from rain in a makeshift tent at the site of a landslide at a gold mine in San Juan Arriba, outskirts of Tegucigalpa July 3, 2014. Rescuers labored with pickaxes and shovels to dig out 11 miners trapped by a landslide at an illegal gold mine in southern Honduras, and are close to reaching three of the workers, officials said on Thursday. The workers were trapped when the entrance of the mine in San Juan Arriba collapsed on Wednesday. Officials said the mine, 110 km (70 miles) south of the capital Tegucigalpa, had been ordered to close a few months ago because it was unsafe.
