A mission to rescue the remainingThai football team trapped in a cave for almost two weeks has began. So far eight boys were taken out of the cave by a team of professional divers on Monday.
EWN Asian correspondent, Richard Urlich, says there are still four boys and their coach in the cave and the rescue mission has already commenced about two hours ago.
The divers are expected to emerge with the team in five hours, he says.
Also with these trapped five people deep in this 4km cave that is flooded, is an army doctor and two Thai navy seal divers. So you have a total of eight people who will be extracted from the cave.— Richard Urlich, EWN Asian correspondent
