New video shows moment Brumadinho dam collapsed in Brazil

Friday's dam collapse was the second-biggest incident in Brazil in the last three years

A week after the collapse of the mining dam in Minas Gerais, in east Brazil, dozens paid homage on Friday to the 115 people killed and 248 still missing.

The back story: Vale started the week with at least five downgrades from US analysts following last Friday's rupture of a dam holding mining waste in Brumadinho, a town in southeastern Brazil.

Authorities say that 110 bodies have been recovered and 238 are listed as missing.

A rescue dog and firefighters search for victims of a dam collapse at an iron-ore mine belonging to Brazil's giant mining company Vale near the town of Brumadinho, Minas Gerais state.

This is the second dam disaster in three years to hit Brazilian mining company Vale. Vale described the document as a routine disaster preparation plan required by regulators.

Dramatic pictures, obtained by Brazilian TV station Bandeirantes, show the moment neighbouring buildings, farmland and parts of the town of Brumadinho were swallowed by muddy sludge in the disaster that has so far claimed more than 100 lives.

The tailings dam at the Corrego do Feijao iron ore mine buckled, resulting in the hillside collapsing and a torrent of toxic sludge flowing down the valley, according to Reuters.

The most recent victims were found in a changing room that was buried by more than 20 metres of mud.

"It is totally devastated, it looks like there has been a war", 23-year-old Edvan Cristi, who lost friends who worked at the mine, said.

Officials with the Mines and Energy Ministry and the National Mining Agency (ANM) told reporters on Friday that the cause of the rupture was still unclear and that all documentation regularly submitted by Vale had indicated that the dam was stable.

Neto said liquefaction caused the 2015 collapse of the Samarco dam, which led to the deaths of 19 people.
