Dramatic pictures have emerged of the collapse of a dam in southern Brazil at an iron ore mine which left more than 300 people dead or missing.
The images, obtained by TV channel Bandeirantes, show the moment a muddy sludge engulfed the company canteen and neighbouring buildings in Brumadinho, in Minas Gerais state.
An investigation is under way.
The article goes on to state the following:
The mine is owned by Vale SA. This is the second such incident at one of its mines in three years.
Five people have been arrested. Prosecutors in Brazil say three were Vale officials, whose responsibilities included dealing with environmental impact licences.
The casualty figure as of Thursday evening was 110 confirmed dead and 238 missing.
A newly released video shows the exact moment of a deadly dam burst in Brazil last week. The dam failure unleashed a surge of mud that buried buildings adjoining the dam. At least 110 people were killed and 238 are still missing. https://t.co/SUFwCtyBzU
