Divers go in to save all remaining Thai boys trapped in cave

Four of the boys were safely rescued on Sunday after rescuers carried out a risky operation, amid fears the waters will rise again to a unsafe level.

Thai army has reported that the operations will be resumed on Tuesday, when the large rescue team of local and foreign divers will again venture into the Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai for a third day, to attempt to bring out the four remaining boys and their coach. Torrential rainfall and flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days. "Some of them had gone to rest, some others are preparing for the next operation".

"All five will be brought out at the same time today", said the head of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakornon, on Tuesday. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said.

A Thai well wisher puts a poster to pray for boys and their soccer coach who have been trapped since June 23, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand Monday. Officials are constantly pumping water out of the caves, and Sunday gave the rescue crews the best chance of recovering more survivors after days of decent weather and pumping reduced flood levels.

The emergence of the second batch of four on Monday evening was greeted with a simple "Hooyah" by the Thai SEAL team on their Facebook page, an exclamation that lit up Thai social media.

They are part of a youth soccer team known as the Wild Boars.

He said the four boys rescued on Sunday were "hungry but in good health".

Donald Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to US Supreme Court position
If the party sticks together, the president's choice will be sitting on the Supreme Court when its new term starts in October. All three were invited to the White House ceremony announcing Kavanaugh's nomination - and all three turned the offer down.

On Tuesday morning the first four boys rescued over the weekend were given bread and chocolate after asking for some of their favorite dishes from home. Since then, two more boys have been confirmed rescued by the Guardian's Asia Correspondent Michael Safi.

Thais have been fixated on the crisis, hoping desperately for the safe return of the 12 boys and their 25-year-old football coach, after they ventured into the Tham Luang cave complex after practice and became trapped by rising waters more than a fortnight ago.

The tech entrepreneur tweeted Tuesday morning he'd "Just returned from Cave 3", referring to the rescuers' command center inside the sprawling cave.

The Associated Press reports that the families of the boys "were being kept at a distance because of fears of infection and the emaciated-looking boys were eating a rice-based porridge because they were still too weak to take regular food, authorities said". "From what I've seen in the clip, they did look skinny", he said.

Monday's operation began at 11 a.m. and took nine hours, two fewer than Sunday, with rescuers helped by the experience they have accumulated, Narongsak told a news conference punctuated with rounds of applause.

"I'm hoping for good news".

On July 6th, former Thai Navy diver, Petty Officer Saman Gunan died while helping deliver oxygen to the team.
