Trapped miners remain underground to avoid arrest

Staying underground: authorities are trying to convince miners in South Africa to come back to the surface but with police standing by there's only been a score of takers so far. It's unclear how many remain underground. The men became trapped when large rocks fell, or were pushed, across the entrance to the shaft. Uganda’s President says he will pass a law banning homosexuality. Finally, Africa News changes gear to catch up with Natnael Berhané, an Eritrean cyclist speeding across France.
