A dam has burst at an iron ore mine in south-eastern Brazil, and is thought to have killed at least 15 people, submerging nearby homes and burying vehicles.
Forty-five people were still missing after the disaster in Minas Gerais state, a local union told the G1 news portal. The mine is operated by Samarco, a joint venture between the Anglo-Australian mining giant, BHP Billiton, and the Brazilian company Vale.
