Teams dig for miners in cave-in

TIMIKA, Indonesia — Mining activities at a giant US-owned gold and copper mine in Indonesia were halted Wednesday as rescuers using jacks, saws, and wheelbarrows dug through a caved-in mine tunnel looking for about 25 trapped workers, the mine operator said.

Four bodies have been found and 10 miners rescued since the cave-in occurred Tuesday morning. Oxygen was being pumped into the tunnel as the search continued, but the status of the trapped workers was not known.
