Cave rescue: All 13 out after 17-day ordeal in Thailand

Divers in northern Thailand have rescued all 13 people trapped in a flooded cave, 17 days after they got trapped underground.

The plight of the 12 boys and their football coach, and the work to free them, gripped the world’s attention.
The first eight boys to be rescued, on Sunday and Monday, are said to be in good mental and physical health.
The group, a football team, had got stuck deep inside on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding.

After they were found by divers last week, huddled in darkness on a ledge and cut off from the outside world for nine days, the race began to get them out before the weather deteriorated even further.

The boys evacuated so far have undergone X-rays and blood tests. They will remain under observation in hospital for at least seven days
