Divers rescue four more Thai boys trapped in cave

Divers have rescued four more boys from a vast flooded cave system in northern Thailand on the second day of a complex operation.

The Thai Navy Seals leading the rescue operation have confirmed that eight boys in total have been extracted.

Four boys and their football coach remain inside the caves.

The group was trapped in the cave on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding, and was found alive last week by divers.

Four boys were brought out safely on Sunday, but the mission was paused overnight for air tanks to be replaced.

Rescuers decided to go ahead with the operation to free the group because of fears that waters would rise again.

A team of 90 expert divers – 40 from Thailand and 50 from overseas – has been working in the cave system.
