SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - The 33 Chilean miners who were trapped deep under the earth for more than two months in 2010 are outraged over a decision to close the case against the mine owners.

The cave-in at the San Jose mine in the Atacama desert brought the mine's safety record into focus and put Chile's top industry, under close scrutiny.

Mario Sepulveda became the public face of the miners. He told the Associated Press Thursday that the decision is a "disgrace" to Chile's justice system.

He says he feels so upset at what he calls an injustice that he wants to "dig a deep hole and bury myself again, only this time, I don't want anybody to find me."
