A group of rescuers yesterday entered a flooded mine shaft in China where 153 workers have been trapped for six days, state media reported.

The 13 rescuers, including six divers, entered the Wangjialing coal mine to explore conditions underground before more rescuers would be sent in.

Some of the rescuers returned within hours, describing the situation underground as "complicated", it said.
