Searching for missing boys, Thai divers grope way through flooded cave


CHIANG RAI, Thailand (Reuters) - Thai navy divers had still to navigate their way through three kilometres (nearly 2 miles) of dark, flooded cave passages on Sunday to reach the spot rescuers believe would give 12 missing boys and their soccer coach a better chance of survival.

Eight days into the search, there has still been no contact with the boys, aged between 11 to 16, or their 25-year-old coach since they went off after soccer practice to explore the vast Tham Luang cave complex in Thailand's northern province of Chiang Rai.
