  • Divers rescue fifth boy from flooded Thailand cave

The footballers still awaiting rescue are about another two kilometres further in, at a point very hard to access. The boys were still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said earlier on Tuesday.

"I want to tell the coach thank you so much for helping the boys survive this long", said one Chiang Rai woman wearing a traditional dress, tears brimming in her eyes.

The eight boys brought out by divers over the previous two days are in "high spirits" and have strong immune systems because they are soccer players, a senior health official said.

Smith, who also runs KAOS Entertainment in Bangkok, said that "it's apolitical, it has no agenda".

But FIFA said it had been informed "that due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow".

A few days of relatively clear weather has allowed them to pump enough water out of the cave to allow the boys to walk through some sections.

The remaining four boys and coach were brought to safety Tuesday morning as part of a third day of rescue operations.

All eight boys rescued on Sunday and Monday are being treated in an isolation ward in a Chiang Rai hospital.

Pakistan ex-PM Sharif sentenced to 10 years for corruption
The longtime politician's first two terms in power ended abruptly under military pressure, the second time by outright coup. In July, last year, Sharif was ousted by the Pakistan supreme court in the Panamagate scandal.

The second group of four rescued on Monday are aged 12 to 14.

Families of the first four have been able to see their children through a glass window, Chokedamrongsook said.

After their discovery deep in the belly of that cave, divers began to deliver sticky rice and pork in waterproof bags to the four SEALs and the soccer team, according to the sources.

Three ambulances along with cars, hummers and soldiers have been seen entering the cave site where rescuers have been carrying out a high-stakes operation to bring out trapped members of a youth soccer team.

Operations to pump water out of the cave went on despite heavy rain showers on Sunday and Monday. Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark, narrow cave by a pair of divers. All they wanted to talk about was whether there were any updates about the team.

Early on Tuesday the Tesla founder tweeted: "Just returned from Cave 3".

Musk posted an image of his email correspondence with Dick Stanton, the British diver who first made contact with the football squad and their coach, in which Stanton asked the inventor to keep working on a project that could potentially bear fruit.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what", they wrote on Facebook, where they have been updating the public on the rescue mission to rescue the 13 members of the Wild Boar soccer team.
