The relatives of the 10 miners trapped in a flooded coal mine that collapsed 10 days ago in the northern Mexico state of Coahuila on Saturday called for the help and intervention of foreign rescuers and criticized the actions of the Mexican experts.

The mine collapsed at 1.35 pm local time (18:35 GMT) on Aug. 3 with 15 miners inside. Five escaped with injuries. Authorities believe miners breached a wall to a flooded area.
