Thai cave rescue: 8 boys and coach still trapped

On Sunday, four boys were brought safely out of the cave. Now, eight boys and their coach are still trapped and the high-risk operation is underway to extract them from a vast flooded cave system.

 

The operation was paused overnight for air tanks to be replaced.

 

 

The Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop said in a TV interview on Monday morning that she believed the boys would be brought out in groups of four, meaning at least two more operations.

 

Bishop added, “Australia has sent a team of 19 to support the dangerous rescue mission being led by Thai authorities and Australian divers were part of yesterday’s successful rescue operation.”
