AP reported that crews in New Zealand re-entered an underground abandoned coal mine where a methane explosion killed 29 workers more than 8 years ago, raising hopes among family members that they might find bodies and new evidence that leads to criminal charges. Ms Anna Osborne, whose husband Milton was killed in the explosion, said the families had been fighting for this ever since the Pike River mine exploded. Ms Osborne said that “We did it. We won.”

She said it had been a hugely emotional day for the families and it was a moving experience to watch people going back into the mine.
