As Chile's rescued miners enjoy their first days at home, they're hoping the media will give them some space.
They say they decided together not to give away the details of their 69 days underground to avoid devaluing the book they want to publish about the ordeal.
And they say the media went overboard covering the return of Johnny Barrios, the rescued miner whose wife and lover live a block away from each other. The wife has received thousands of dollars that were donated to Barrios, but the miner returned to the lover's home, all in the glare of television cameras.
Juan Illanes spoke for six other miners who appeared with him at a news conference Saturday. They also asked for training and other government benefits.
