All 12 boys and their soccer coach rescued from cave in Thailand

Following a night-time stop of the operation, the daring attempt resumed on Monday morning. The boys brought out of the dark, winding cave on Monday are "safe and conscious", said Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue effort.

The dramatic and unsafe rescue at the Tham Luang cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai was launched on Sunday and four boys were brought out that day.

Update: 6:45 a.m. EDT- Rescue workers brought out a fifth boy at 5 p.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT) Monday from the cave in Thailand, the Guardian reported.

But he could not confirm if all five would come out today.

"The rescue has been huge", said volunteer helper Somjit Saenset, 56.

The world has been watching, and an global team of divers and support crews were assembled to aid the rescue.

The eight boys rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand are in "high spirits", a senior health official said Tuesday.

The boys were among 12 members of the Wild Boars team, ages 11-17, who ventured deep into the cave along with their 25-year-old coach on June 23.

The Times said more than a dozen participants from different countries at the assembly confirmed the "showdown over the issue". Russian Federation ultimately sponsored the resolution and the American delegation did not issue any threats to the country.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the operation told Reuters the operation to rescue more of the nine boys and their coach was underway, although no official confirmation was issued.

Among these were that none of the boys had scuba diving experience, and that they could easily panic while swimming underwater across twisted passageways in darkness.

Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda told reporters the four rescued boys rescued on Sunday were in good health in hospital but did not give details. Some are not even strong swimmers, and have had to learn to dive in conditions that claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL on Friday.

The rescue began on Sunday. Relatives were able to see them through a glass partition, the governor said. He said that water level in the cave continued to recede, facilitating the rescue operations five hours early on Monday.

He first tweeted about the situation in Thailand, which has been watched closely across the world since the boys and their coach were all miraculously found alive after nine days underground, on 4 July, saying he would be "happy to help if there is a way to do so". "This morning they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao", he said, referring to a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil and served over rice.

At the hospital in Chiang Rai, green canvas sheets had been put up to block the entrance from view.

The boys, whose names have not been revealed, are being treated at Chiang Rai Prachanukraw Hospital in Muang district.

Medical teams previously said concerns included hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings.

He also urged the media to behave respectfully.

"The operation went much better than expected", mission head Narongsak Osottanakorn said on Sunday. One of the boys was removed by divers, placed on a stretcher and hospitalized.
