Thai Cave Rescue Mission operation underway to free remaining boys and their coach of a football team trapped in a flooded cave entered second day today.
Thailand PM is also expected to arrive at site, : “The Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop said in a TV interview on Monday morning she believed the boys would be brought out in groups of four, meaning at least two more operations….”
