Bangkok, Divers in northern Thailand have

rescued all 12 boys and their football coach from flooded caves, 17

days after they got trapped underground.

The plight of the group and the dangerous work to free them has

gripped the world’s attention.

The first of the boys were brought out last Sunday, but the last

of the group were only freed this evening.

They got stuck deep inside the caves on 23 June after heavy

rains caused flooding and cut off their route out.

Aged between about 11 and 17, the members of the Wild Boars

football team had entered the Tham Luang cave system in the province

of Chiang Rai during an excursion with their coach, the BBC reported.
