    Thai Navy SEAL divers are pushing deeper into flooded caves in Thailand, where a boys' football team and their coach have been missing for more than a week.

    More than 1,000 rescuers from several countries - including the US and China - have joined the search.

    Some progress has been made since the weather cleared on Friday, but there is still no sign of them.
