    The Chilean miners have landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport.

    Four months after they were rescued from a collapsed mine in the Atacama Desert, 31 of the 33 men , and their partners, have arrived for a tour of Israel.

    The visit, organised by Israeli Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov just days after the men were saved, has been labelled “the pilgrimage of thanks in the Holy Land”.

    Mr Misezhnikov said he offered them the free holiday in tribute to their “bravery and strength of spirit”.

    Their eight day long stay will include stops at sites in Jerusalem, Bethlehem and elsewhere, as well as a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres and a reception hosted by Israel’s Spanish-language media organisation Punto Press.
