Chile's famous 33 rescued miners have had a difficult first anniversary of their ordeal.

At a Catholic Mass to celebrate their rescue, the men were pelted with fruit and stones by anti-government demonstrators angry at the miners' apparent co-operation with Chile's deeply unpopular President, Sebastian Pinera. A local newspaper also printed pictures of riot police holding boxes of apples and oranges seized from protesters.
