'Thai authorities have begun an operation to rescue 12 boys and their coach from the cave where they have been trapped for two weeks.
Rescue teams entered the cave at 10:00 local time (03:00 GMT), an official said at a news conference.
Earlier in the day, all non-essential staff were evacuated from the site, leaving only diving teams, medics and security forces at the site. '

The Guardian

“The rescue operation started around 10am local time and the soonest any boy would be freed was 9pm, said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the governor of Chiang Rai province. The boys would be removed gradually and accompanied by two divers each in an operation that could continue until at least Monday.”

Bangkok Post said a source had told them the football team and their coach would be rescued in four batches: one of four and three of three people.

Rescue authorities said the coach will be the last to be taken out, Bangkok Post reported.

Ambulance seen leaving, but no information on how it’s related to the rescuce. It’s still some two hours before the estimated time the first boy might be retrieved.

AFP reporting another four boys will “walk out of the cave” soon.

CNN is now saying that it’s unsure if this is an additional four or an update on the number of boys in the first group out.

Any number of children rescued and OK is a good number!
BBC saying 4 boys have been evacuated from the cave and are in good condition. Apparently they took the healthiest out first.
Next rescue attempt will be in about 10 hours, after divers have a chance to rest.
