Rescuers pour in to help Thailand find missing football team

Australia, UK, Japan, Laos, China, Myanmar and US are aiding the effort to find 12 boys and their coach, missing in a flooded cave for more than a week.

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.
