A protest is held in front of Vale headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, three days after a mine dam owned by the company collapsed, leaving hundreds missing in Brumadinho, in Minas Gerais state. Protesters are demanding for the re-nationalization of the mining company which was run by the state until 1997.

New alert as hundreds feared dead in Brazil dam disaster

An alarm warning of an imminent mining dam rupture went up early Sunday in Brumadinho, the same Brazilian community where a dam collapsed killing 37 with hundreds more feared dead, firefighters and the mining company said. The alert, warning of dangerously high water levels at a dam that is part of the Corrego do Feijao mining complex in southeastern Brazil, went off at 5:30 am (0730 GMT), a statement by the mining company Vale said. A dam at the same mining site burst Friday, spewing millions of tons of treacherous sludge and engulfing buildings, vehicles and roads.
