About 300 people are missing after a dam collapsed at an iron ore mine in south-eastern Brazil.

Officials say the break caused a sea of muddy sludge that buried the dam’s cafeteria where workers were eating lunch on Friday.

Rescue teams used earth-moving machinery at the site.

Brazil’s State governor said there was little chance of finding people alive. So far nine people have been confirmed dead.
