    Food supplies and medical treatment are helping build up the strength of a football team trapped in a cave in northern Thailand for 12 days.

    Rescuers are working out how to get the 12 boys and their coach out, including a crash course in scuba diving.

    Thai navy SEALS are using a chamber around 700 metres into the cave complex as a base for the rescue operation.
