The rescue mission is still underway.
Officials lavished praise on the Thai and worldwide divers who executed the unsafe rescue mission, guiding boys who can barely swim and have no diving experience through a treacherous 4-kilometre-long (2 1/2-mile) escape route that twisted and turned and rose and fell inside the mountain cave complex.
19 divers entered the cave at 10.08am today, with more divers to enter gradually throughout the day 5.21pm: 19 divers entered the cave at 10.08am today, with more to enter gradually throughout the day, thee Guardian reports.
Torrential rain had not affected conditions for the rescue operation.
Thai officials had said Sunday that they were temporarily suspending the rescue effort so they could replenish oxygen supplies and other gear. "Four plus one coach, so it's five".
The next day (7th July), it was decided by the rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn that it was not yet safe for the boys to dive out of the cave.

Caves can also present a risk of tick-borne relapsing fever as well as histoplasmosis - a fungal lung infection commonly known as "cave disease". Cave exploring is something they usually do after practices, but this excursion proved costly after they were trapped by the heavy rains.
Authorities have said extracting the entire team from the cave could take up to four days, but two straight days of success raised hopes that it could be done faster. Another was freed an hour later, and two others soon followed.
But although the eight were rescued, there were concerns they may have contracted an illness while in the cave.
