    Russian miners emerge from ordeal BBC NEWS
    The mine's director Vasily Avdeyev - who was on his first day in the job when the accident happened - was among the last 11 to be rescued from the mine.

    'When we saw the rescuers, it was like the appearance of Christ before the people,' he said. 'We had nothing to eat. I delivered a speech saying that a 20-day fast has not ever hurt anyone and it is good for the health.'
