Rescue teams were still searching on Monday for eight workers missing in a flooded underground mine owned by Russian diamond miner Alrosa after one miner was rescued over the weekend.

Parts of the “Mir” (“Peace” or “World”) mine in the remote Yakutia region of eastern Siberia flooded on Friday when water seeped in from an open-cast mine above it.
