Dramatic footage has emerged showing the moment a mine dam burst in Brazil, leaving 110 people dead and 200 missing. Vale described the document as a routine disaster preparation plan required by regulators.

The owner of the dam, Vale, said in a press conference that the majority of the victims were employees.
Money is also being provided to help pay for funeral services, the company said, as Brazil's ministry of labour froze more of Vale's assets with an eye on recovering cleanup costs and eventual compensation claims.
