Shocking CCTV footage released on Friday captures the moment a dam at an iron ore mine collapsed in the south-eastern city of Brumadinho on January 25, resulting in a deadly mudslide overrunning the area and destroying buildings in its wake.
The mudslide can be seen engulfing the company canteen of mining giant Vale, who were responsible for the collapse, as well as neighbouring buildings.

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.
Brazilian families of those still missing after a tsunami of toxic mud broke through a dam at an iron-ore mine owned by Vale near the town of Brumadinho, in Minas Gerais, continue to wait for information three days after the disaster, which killed at least 60 people.
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.
The collapse of a disused dam owned by Brazilian mining giant Vale in Brazil releases a massive torrent of mud that washed over the iron-ore extraction complex, leaving 200 people missing and a near-certainty of multiple deaths. IMAGES
