A group of teenage soccer players and their coach stuck in a cave in northern Thailand for more than a week have been found safe and alive.

Three veteran British cave divers — John Volanthen, Rob Harper and Rick Stanton — had flown to the country to lend their expertise in the rescue operation, which also included Thai and U.S. Navy personnel.

According to Agence France-Presse, while heavy rains had hampered the rescue effort, a pause in the bad weather earlier today allowed divers to penetrate further into the Tham Luang cave system where the 12 boys and their coach were subsequently found.
